Piperazine is widely used as an intermediate in the manufacture of insecticides, rubber chemicals, corrosion inhibitors, and urethane. In this study, a highly effective piperazine-degrading bacteria strain, TOH, was isolated from the acclimated activated sludge of a pharmaceutical plant. This strain, identified as Paracoccus sp., utilises piperazine as the sole source of carbon, nitrogen and energy for growth. The optimal pH and temperature for the growth of TOH were 8.0 and 30°C, respectively… Expand

Effects ofdirect current on Klebsiella spp. viability and corresponding resistance gene expression in simulative bio-electrochemical reactors.
Takeaway is that BERs possess potential risks in accelerating ARB multiplication and promoting ARG expression, and reactive oxygen species produced from the electrolysis of water were greater with the increasing current, which may be responsible for the high lethality rate of Klebsiella spp. Expand
