Abstractp-Nitrophenol (PNP), a toxic nitroaromatic compound, can build up in soils due to extensive usage of nitrophenolic pesticides and hence needs to be removed. Arthrobacter protophormiae RKJ100, a PNP-degrading organism, was used in this work to study factors affecting its growth, and then evaluated for its capacity to degrade PNP in soil microcosms. Molasses (10%) treated with 0.1% potassium hexacyanoferrate was found to be a suitable and cheap carbon source for inoculum preparation… 
A MICROCOSM STUDY ON P-NITROPHENOL BIODEGRADATION IN SOIL SLURRY BY ALCALIGENES FAECALIS: PLACKETT-BURMAN DESIGN
Contamination of soils with nitroaromatic hydrocarbons, due to their toxic effects, is one of the environmental issues. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine para-nitrophenol (PNP)
A microcosm study on bioremediation of fenitrothion-contaminated soil using Burkholderia sp. FDS-1
TLDR
The results indicate that strain FDS-1 has potential for use in bioremediation of fenitrothion and its metabolite-contaminated sites and is a model study that could be used for decontamination of sites contaminated with other compounds.
Characterization of p-nitrophenol degrading actinomycetes from Hundung limestone deposits in Manipur, India
TLDR
Of several Microbial Biotechnology Research Laboratory strains isolated from limestone deposits in Ukhrul, Manipur, India, two strains were found to be promising PNP biodegraders, degrading up to 30 mg/L PNP in neutral basal salts medium (BSM, pH 7.0).
Bioremediation of p-Nitrophenol by Pseudomonas putida 1274 strain
TLDR
The results suggested that P. putida 1274 strain would be a suitable aspirant for bioremediation of nitro-aromatic compounds contaminated sites in the environment.
Biodegradation of p-nitrophenol sorbed onto crystal violet-modified organoclay by Arthrobacter sp. 4Hβ
TLDR
Three successive cycles of PNP reloading–degradation in the organoclay suspension demonstrated the potential of this matrix’s regeneration and reuse toward maximal removal efficiency of organic pollutants.
Biodegradation of p-nitrophenol by methyl parathion-degrading Ochrobactrum sp. B2
Abstract Ochrobactrum sp. B2, a methyl parathion-degrading bacterium, was proved to be capable of using p -nitrophenol (PNP) as carbon and energy source. The effect of factors, such as temperature,
Increasing tolerance to and degradation of high p-nitrophenol concentrations by inoculum size manipulations of Arthrobacter 4Hβ isolated from agricultural soil
Abstract Arthrobacter sp. 4Hβ, capable of degrading and utilizing high concentrations of p-nitrophenol (PNP) as sole carbon, nitrogen and energy source, was isolated from agricultural soil by a
4-Nitrophenol biodegradation by an isolated and characterized microbial consortium and statistical optimization of physicochemical parameters by Taguchi Methodology
Abstract A metabolically versatile and highly efficient 4-Nitrophenol degrading bacterial consortium was isolated from a pesticide-contaminated agricultural soil by successive enrichment on a mineral
Mineralization of p-nitrophenol by a new isolate Arthrobacter sp. Y1
TLDR
Spectrophotometry assay of the nitrite and genotoxic study showed that strain Y1 could detoxify PNP, and the present study may provide a basis for the development of the bioremediation strategies to remedy the pollutants in the environment.
Degradation of p-nitrophenol by Achromobacter xylosoxidans Ns isolated from wetland sediment
TLDR

Accelerated Mineralization of Pentachlorophenol in Soil upon Inoculation with Mycobacterium chlorophenolicum PCP1 and Sphingomonas chlorophenolica RA2
TLDR
Mineralization of pentachlorophenol was studied in nonsterile soil from a PCP-contaminated site upon inoculation with twoPCP-degrading bacterial strains and possible reasons for the poor performance include its sensitivity to PCP and its preference for slightly acidic soil conditions.
Kinetics of biodegradation of p-nitrophenol by different bacteria.
Three bacterial species, i.e., Ralstonia sp. SJ98, Arthrobacter protophormiae RKJ100, and Burkholderia cepacia RKJ200, have been examined for their efficiency and kinetics behavior toward PNP
Degradation of p-nitrophenol by the phototrophic bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus
TLDR
It is concluded that the xenobiotic is used as a carbon source by R. capsulatus, but that only the strain able to assimilate nitrite (E1F1) can use p-nitrophenol as a nitrogen source.
Plasmid-encoded degradation of p-nitrophenol and 4-nitrocatechol by Arthrobacter protophormiae.
TLDR
A plasmid of approximately 65 kb was found to be responsible for harboring genes for PNP and NC degradation in this strain, indicating that PNP(-) NC(-) derivatives had simultaneously lost their capability to grow at the expense of these nitroaromatic compounds.
Inoculation of an atrazine-degrading strain, Chelatobacter heintzii Cit1, in four different soils: effects of different inoculum densities.
TLDR
The possibility to improve atrazine degradation in soils by bioaugmentation was studied and inoculation of C. heintzii did not accelerate the rate of atrazin mineralization, which was essentially performed by the indigenous microflora.
Inoculum size as a factor limiting success of inoculation for biodegradation
TLDR
It is suggested that a species able to degrade a synthetic chemical in culture may failing to bring about the same transformation in natural waters, because small populations added as inocula may be eliminated by protozoan grazing or may fail to survive because of nutrient deficiencies.
Effects of Soil pH on the Biodegradation of Chlorpyrifos and Isolation of a Chlorpyrifos-Degrading Bacterium
TLDR
The role of microorganisms in the degradation of the organophosphate insecticide chlorpyrifos in soils from the United Kingdom and Australia was examined, finding a robust bacterial population that utilized chlorparyifos as a source of carbon was detected in an Australian soil.
Pathway for Biodegradation of p-Nitrophenol in a Moraxella sp
TLDR
The results indicate that the pathway for biodegradation of p-nitrophenol involves the initial removal of the nitro group as nitrite and formation of hydroquinone.
Oxidative Pathway for the Biodegradation of Nitrobenzene by Comamonas sp. Strain JS765
TLDR
The results indicate that the catabolic pathway involves an initial dioxygenase attack on nitrobenzene with the release of nitrite and formation of catechol, which is subsequently degraded by a meta cleavage pathway.

TLDR
The results clearly indicate the existence of an alternative pathway for the biodegradation of PNP, and isolated a strain of an Arthrobacter sp.
