Background and purpose: Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHS) are environmental pollutants that are caused by human activity and considered as carcinogenic and mutagenic compounds. Anthracene is a hazardous substance causing serious health problems. There are many bacteria with the ability to remove this pollutant. The aim of of this study was isolation of some bacteria from Tajan river estuary and their use in biodegradation of Anthracene. Materials and methods: In this study the samples…

Factors Affecting Microbial Degradation of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Phenanthrene in the Caribbean Coastal Water
Abstract Studies were conducted to assess factors that may influence the rate and extent of biodegradation of polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in waters of Guayanilla Bay (latitude, 18°N; longitude,
Degradation of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons as Affected by some Lactic Acid Bacteria
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a group of chemicals composed of two or more fused aromatic rings that are formed from the incomplete combustion or high-temperature pyrolysis of coal,
Isolation and Identification of Pyrene Mineralizing Mycobacterium spp. from Contaminated and Uncontaminated Sources
TLDR
It is demonstrated that prior exposure to PAHs was not a prerequisite for PAH catabolic activity for two of these Mycobacterium isolates, and that PAH degrading microorganisms may be isolated from a diverse range of environmental matrices.
Isolation and characterization of phenanthrene-degrading bacteria from a petroleum refinery soil
TLDR
Biodegradation rates were evidenced by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), with detected efficiencies in ARP26 and ARP28 cultures up to 93% and 98% respectively, within the first seven days of incubation.
Degradation of pyrene and characterization ofSaccharothrix sp. PYX-6 from the oligotrophic Tianchi Lake in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, China
Bacterial strain PYX-6 that utilizes anthracene, phenanthrene, or pyrene for carbon and energy sources for growth was isolated from a non-polluted lake (Tianchi Lake) in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomons

Isolation and Characterization of aMycobacterium Species Capable of Degrading Three- and Four-Ring Aromatic and Aliphatic Hydrocarbons
TLDR
No DNA hybridization was detected with the nahAcgene probe, indicating that enzymes involved in PAH metabolism are not related to the well-characterized naphthalene dioxygenase gene, and a distant relationship between genes involved in alkane oxidation is suggested.
Biodegradation of Naphthalene by Pseudomonas stutzeri in Marine Environments: Testing Cells Entrapment in Calcium Alginate for Use in Water Detoxification
ABSTRACT The biodegradation of naphthalene in sea water by freely suspended and alginate-entrapped cells of Pseudomonas stutzeri 19SMN4 has been investigated in batch cultures. The results showed
Degradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: Role of plasmids
TLDR
In this review, an insight is given into the role of plasmid in degradation of PAHs, acquisition of degradative ability by these organisms via horizontal transfer and clustering, resulting from tranposon-mediated recombination.
Products from the Incomplete Metabolism of Pyrene by Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon-Degrading Bacteria
TLDR
It is suggested that products derived from pyrene transformation have the potential to accumulate in PAH-contaminated systems and that such products can significantly influence the removal of other PAH.
