AIMS To characterize an atrazine-degrading bacterial community enriched from the wastewater of a herbicide factory. METHODS AND RESULTS The community mineralized 81.4 +/- 1.9% of [(14)C-ring]atrazine and 31.0 +/- 1.8% of [(14)C-ethyl]atrazine within 6 days of batch cultivation in mineral salts medium containing atrazine as the sole nitrogen source. Degradation activity of the community towards different chloro- and methylthio-substituted s-triazine compounds was also demonstrated. Restriction… CONTINUE READING
