Bacillus circulans WZ-12—a newly discovered aerobic dichloromethane-degrading methylotrophic bacterium


A novel dichloromethane (DCM)-degrading bacterial strain named WZ-12 (GenBank accession no. EF100968) was isolated and identified as Bacillus circulans based on standard morphological and physiological properties and nucleotide sequence analysis of enzymatically amplified 16S ribosomal deoxyribonucleic acid. DCM dehalogenase from B. circulans WZ-12 was… (More)
