The biological process for phosphorus removal from wastewater is based on the use of bacteria capable of accumulating inorganic polyphosphate (polyp). We previously showed that a phoU mutation leads to polyp accumulation in Escherichia coli. The phoU mutant could be easily screened on agar plates containing 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl-phosphate (X-P(i… CONTINUE READING
