Simultaneous Quantification of Bisphenol-A and 4-Tert-Octylphenol in the Live Aquaculture Feed Artemia franciscana and in Its Culture Medium Using HPLC-DAD

Aquaculture, a mass supplier of seafood, relies on plastic materials that may contain the endocrine disruptors bisphenol-A (BPA) and tert-octylphenol (t-OCT). These pollutants present toxicity to

Environmental Water Pollution, Endocrine Interference and Ecotoxicity of 4-tert-Octylphenol: A Review.

It is concluded that inadequate knowledge of its endocrine activities impedes understanding of its toxicity which may frustrate current efforts at ridding the compound from the environment.

Candida pseudoglaebosa and Kodamaea ohmeri are capable of degrading alkanes in the presence of heavy metals.

Four strains of two yeast species examined were able to degrade several alkanes in the presence of HMs and under acidic conditions, and these yeasts harbor paralogous alkane-induced CYP52 genes, which display different profiles of transcriptional expression.

Aerobic degradation of estrogenic alkylphenols by yeasts isolated from a sewage treatment plant

It is concluded that Candida rugopelliculosa RRKY5 is a potent candidate for the biodegradation of 4-t-OP and thus can potentially be used for bio-remedial actions in the future.

Catabolism of 4-hydroxybenzoate in Candida parapsilosis proceeds through initial oxidative decarboxylation by a FAD-dependent 4-hydroxybenzoate 1-hydroxylase.

The first two steps in the catabolism of 4-hydroxybenzoate by the ascomycetous yeast Candida parapsilosis CBS604 were investigated and the alternative pathway proceeding through initial 3-hydroxylation followed by oxidative decarboxylation in the second step is excluded.

Formation of toxic 2-nonyl-p-benzoquinones from α-tertiary 4-nonylphenol isomers during microbial metabolism of technical nonylphenol.

It is predicted that in nonylphenol polluted natural systems, in which microbial ipso-degradation is prominent, 2-alkylquinone metabolites will be produced and will contribute to the overall toxicity of the remaining material.

Photodegradation of 4-tert octylphenol in aqueous solution promoted by Fe(III)

4-t-OP in aqueous solution can be degraded in the presence of Fe(III) under the solar irradiation and the photoinduced degradation is due to the reaction with hydroxyl radicals.

Degradation of the xenoestrogen nonylphenol by aquatic fungi and their laccases.

A role of fungi occurring in aquatic ecosystems in degradation of water contaminants with endocrine activity, which has not previously been considered, is emphasized.
