Total community DNA from 29 noncontaminated soils and soils impacted by petroleum hydrocarbons and chloro-organics from Antarctica and Brazil were screened for the presence of nine catabolic genes, encoding alkane monooxygenase or aromatic dioxygenases, from known bacterial biodegradation pathways. Specific primers and probes targeting alkane monooxygenase genes were derived from Pseudomonas putida ATCC 29347 (Pp alkB), Rhodococcus sp. strain Q15 (Rh alkB1, Rh alkB2), and Acinetobacter sp.
