Characterization of Gordonia sp. strain F.5.25.8 capable of dibenzothiophene desulfurization and carbazole utilization

Abstract

A dibenzothiophene (DBT)-degrading bacterial strain able to utilize carbazole as the only source of nitrogen was identified as Gordonia sp. F.5.25.8 due to its 16S rRNA gene sequence and phenotypic characteristics. Gas chromatography (GC) and GC–mass spectroscopy analyses showed that strain F.5.25.8 transformed DBT into 2-hydroxybiphenyl (2-HBP). This… (More)
