Axenic methanotrophic culture strain CSC1, which was derived from a mixed-culture aquifer sample, oxidized 2-chlorobiphenyl to a hydroxylated chlorobiphenyl intermediate identified as 2-hydroxy-3-chlorobiphenyl. Minor amounts of another hydroxylated chlorobiphenyl isomer, assumed to be the nonmigrated product 3-hydroxy-2-chlorobiphenyl, were found in axenic… (More)
