A bacterial isolate capable of degrading PCP in nutrient media as well as in minimal media has been identified as an Arthrobacter This bacterium, able to utilize PCP as a sole carbon source, produces two extracellular enzymes that begin the mineralization process. These enzymes (molecular weights of 18,000 and 35,000 daltons as determined by capillary… CONTINUE READING
