Pseudomonas sp. FR1 (pFRC20P) is a recombinant bacterium able simultaneously to degrade alkyl- and haloaromatics due to the xylXYZL and xylS genes from the TOL plasmid borne on the bacterial chromosome, and to the gene encoding for a gamma-lactone isomerase from Alcaligenes eutrophus on pFRC20P. The survival of this strain in sterile soils was shown to depend on the physicochemical properties of the soil. The recombinant information was stable in bacteria introduced in soils and conferred… CONTINUE READING
