Through selective enrichment of atrazine-metabolizing microorganisms, a microbial community was selected from agricultural soil. Bacterial isolates, identified by their closest similarity with 16S rDNA sequences stored in NCBI GeneBank, belonged to the genera: Massilia, Stenotrophomonas, Klebsiella, Sphingomonas, Ochrobactrum, Arthrobacter, Microbacterium, Xanthomonas and Ornithinimicrobium. From these strains, only the first six used atrazine as nitrogen and carbon source. The microbial… CONTINUE READING
