The biodegradation rate of chlorophenols in the environment seems to be limited by a competitive mechanism of O-methylation which produces chloroanisoles with a high potential of being bioconcentrated in living organisms. In this work we report for the first time the isolation of three soil bacterial strains able to efficiently degrade 2,4,6-trichloroanisole (2,4,6-TCA). These strains were identified as Xanthomonas retroflexus INBB4, Pseudomonas putida INBP1 and Acinetobacter radioresistens… CONTINUE READING
