Four strains with high phenanthrene-degrading ability were isolated from petroleum badly polluted soil. The strainPseudomonas sp. ZJF08 demonstrated the highest rate of degradation (138. 1 mg·L−1·day−1) among them and degraded 97.1% of the phenanthrene in one week. The activities of two key enzymes of ZJF08, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon dioxygenase and catechol-2,3-oxygenase (C23O), were also assayed during the degradation of phenanthrene. Both of them reached their maximums on the 2nd day… CONTINUE READING
