Biodegradation of 1,4-dioxane and transformation of related cyclic compounds by a newly isolated Mycobacterium sp. PH-06


A new bacterial strain PH-06 was isolated using enrichment culture technique from river sediment contaminated with 1,4-dioxane, and identified as belonging to the genus Mycobacterium based on 16S rRNA sequencing (Accession No. EU239889). The isolated strain effectively utilized 1,4-dioxane as a sole carbon and energy source and was able to degrade 900 mg/l… (More)
