An investigation was carried out to compare the ability of two bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa PSA5 and Rhodococcus sp. NJ2 isolated from petroleum sludge for degradation of benzo(a)pyrene [B(a)P], a HMW PAH compound in MSM. During 25 days of incubation, 50 ppm B(a)P was degraded by 88 and 47 % by P. aeruginosa PSA5 and Rhodococcus sp. NJ2, respectively. Besides, involvement of different catabolic enzymes, that is, salicylate hydroxylase, 2-carboxybenzaldehyde dehydrogenase, catechol 1,2… CONTINUE READING
