Hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) is a highly recalcitrant pesticide that persists in soils. Three novel HCH-degrading strains (DS2, DS2-2 and DS3-1) were isolated after enrichment from HCH-contaminated soil from Germany. These strains efficiently degraded the alpha-, gamma- and delta-isomers of HCH, while strain DS3-1 also degraded beta-HCH. Based on 16S rDNA analysis, strain DS3-1 was closely related to Sphingomonas taejonensis, while strains DS2 and DS2-2 were closely related to Sphingomonas flava… CONTINUE READING
