A methyl parathion (MP) degrading bacterial strain, designated MP-1(T), was isolated from a waste land where pesticides were formerly manufactured in Jiangsu province, China. Polyphasic taxonomic studies showed that MP-1(T) is a Gram-stain-negative, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped and motile bacterium. The bacterium could grow at salinities of 0-1 % (w/v) and(More)
A methyl parathion hydrolase (MPH) gene, bjmpd, was cloned from a newly isolated MP-degrading bacterial strain, Burkholderia jiangsuensis MP-1T and heterologously expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3). Although the amino acid sequence of the bjmpd-encoded enzyme, named BjMPH, differed from that of MPH from Pseudomonas sp. WBC-3 (PsMPH) in only three(More)
