Dibenzothiophene desulfurization capability and evolutionary divergence of newly isolated bacteria

Abstract

Metabolically microorganisms are diverse, and they are capable of transforming almost every known group of chemical compounds present in coal and oil in various forms. In this milieu, one of the important microbial metabolic processes is the biodesulfurization [cleavage of carbon–sulfur (C–S) bond] of thiophenic compounds, such as dibenzothiophene (DBT… (More)
