Biodegradation of trichloroethylene (TCE) by bacterial strain G4 resulted in complete dechlorination of the compound, as indicated by the production of inorganic chloride. A component of the water from which strain G4 was isolated that was required for TCE degradation was identified as phenol. Strain G4 degraded TCE in the presence of chloramphenicol only when preinduced with phenol. Toluene, o-cresol. and m-cresol could replace the phenol requirement. Two of the inducers of TCE metabolism… CONTINUE READING
