Strain SK-4, a polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) degrader previously reported to utilize di-ortho-substituted biphenyl, was genotypically re-characterized as a species of Cupriavidus. The bacterium harbored a single plasmid (pSK4), which resisted curing and which, after genetic marking by a transposon (SK4Tn5), could be mobilized into a pseudomonad. Analysis… CONTINUE READING
