Degradation of zearalenone by the extracellular extracts of Acinetobacter sp. SM04 liquid cultures

A bacterium (designated SM04) which can rapidly grow on zearalenone (ZEN) as sole carbon and energy source was isolated from agricultural soil. On the basis of 16S rDNA sequencing analysis, strain SM04 was classified as a bacterium belonging to the Acinetobacter genus. In this study, the biodegradation of ZEN by the extracellular extracts of strain SM04… CONTINUE READING
