Biodesulfurization of organic-sulfur compounds


A screening assay in which dibenzothiophene (DBT) or DBT-sulfone served as the only bioavailable source of sulfur was used to obtain two new bacterial isolates, strains UM9 and UM3, that desulfurized either substrate. Strain UM9 produced the desulfurized product, 2-hydroxybiphenyl (HBP); no other identifiable desulfurized products or released sulfate or… (More)
