1,2,3-Trichlorobenzene transformation by Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b expressing soluble methane monooxygenase

 Transformation of 1,2,3- and 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene in the presence of 20 mM sodium formate, by the methanotrophic bacterium Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b, was studied using cells grown in batch and continuous culture. Only 1,2,3-trichlorobenzene was transformed and transformation was strictly co-metabolic, only catalysed in the presence of the soluble form of methane monooxygenase. The kinetics of transformation could be described by simple first-order kinetics (0.00193 l min-1 g-1). Also… CONTINUE READING
