To evaluate the health risk of cyanobacterial blooms, the levels of the neurotoxic non-protein amino acid, β-methylamino-l-alanine (BMAA), was investigated in the freshwater ecosystem of Gonghu Bay… Expand
Biodegradation of 4-chloronitrobenzene by biochemical cooperation between Sphingomonas sp. strain CNB3 and Burkholderia sp. strain CAN6 isolated from activated sludge.
Two bacterial strains were isolated from activated sludge by using 4-chloronitrobenzene (4-CB) as the sole source of carbon for enrichment. One of the isolates was identified as Sphingomonas sp.… Expand
Identification and Characterization of a Cold-Active Phthalate Esters Hydrolase by Screening a Metagenomic Library Derived from Biofilms of a Wastewater Treatment Plant
A cold-active phthalate esters hydrolase gene (designated dphB) was identified through functional screening of a metagenomic library derived from biofilms of a wastewater treatment plant. The enzyme… Expand
Extension of Sphingobium sp. BHC-A to a 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid mineralizing strain by metabolic engineering.
The gene cassette encoding for TftAB and TftCD proteins was integrated into the 16srDNA gene of the γ-hexachlorocyclohexane (γ-HCH) mineralizing strain Sphingobium sp. BHC-A by homologous… Expand
Detoxification of Cylindrospermopsin by Pyrite in Water
Succession of sulfur bacteria during decomposition of cyanobacterial bloom biomass in the shallow Lake Nanhu: An ex situ mesocosm study.
Previous studies of the dynamics of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) and sulfur-oxidizing bacteria (SOB) have focused on deep stratified lakes. The objective of this study is to present an in-depth… Expand
