Comparative studies on tetrachloroethene reductive dechlorination mediated by Desulfitobacterium sp. strain PCE-S

Tetrachloroethene reductive dechlorination was studied with cell extracts of a newly isolated, tetrachloroethene-utilizing bacterium, Desulfitobacterium sp. strain PCE-S. Tetrachloroethene dehalogenase mediated the reductive dechlorination of tetrachloroethene and trichloroethene to cis-1,2-dichloroethene with artificial electron donors such as methyl… (More)
