A new bacterial strain, Shinella zoogloeoides BC026, which utilizes pyridine as its sole carbon, nitrogen and energy source, was isolated from the activated sludge of a coking wastewater treatment plant. The BC026 strain completely degraded up to 1,806 mg/l of pyridine in 45.5 h. The optimum degradation conditions were pH 8.0 and temperature 30–35°C. According to product monitoring and genetic analysis, the pyridine ring was cleaved between C2 and N, resulting in 58% of pyridine-N being… CONTINUE READING
