A bacteria strain, YW6, capable of utilizing monocrotophos (MCP) as the sole carbon and nitrogen sources for growth was isolated from paddy soil and identified as Starkeya novella. Strain YW6 completely degraded 0.2 mM MCP within 36 h without any lag period. Addition of carbon source resulted in slowing down of the initial rate of degradation of MCP, while the presence of a more favorable source of nitrogen enhanced the degradation of MCP. In addition to the degradation of MCP, strain YW6 was… Expand
