Pseudomonas cepacia G4 expresses a unique toluene orth-monooxygenase (Tom) that enables it to degrade toluene and trichloroethylene (TCE). Transposon mutants of G4 have been isolated that constitutively express Tom. Two fixed-film bioreactor designs were investigated for the exploitation of one such constitutive strain (G4 PR1) in the degradation of vapor-phase TCE. DNA probe analysis indicates that the genes responsible for the toluene catabolic pathway are located on a large plasmid of G4… CONTINUE READING
