Biodegradation of bisphenol A and related compounds by Sphingomonas sp. strain BP-7 isolated from seawater.

Abstract

A bacterium capable of assimilating 2,2-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)propane (bisphenol A), strain BP-7, was isolated from offshore seawater samples on a medium containing bisphenol A as sole source of carbon and energy, and identified as Sphingomonas sp. strain BP-7. Other strains, Pseudomonas sp. strain BP-14, Pseudomonas sp. strain BP-15, and strain no. 24A, were… (More)
