A chlorpyrifos (CPY)-degrading bacterial strain was isolated from an activated sludge sample collected from theDamascus Wastewater Treatment Plant, Syria. The isolation ofKlebsiella sp. was facilitated by the addition of CPY at a rate of 3.84 g/L of sludge weekly (selection pressure). Identification ofKlebsiella sp. was done using major staining and biochemical differentiation tests (Gram stain, cytochrome oxidase and some relevant saccharide fermentation tests using biochemical assays… CONTINUE READING
