Several distinct naphthalene dioxygenases have been characterized to date, which provides the opportunity to investigate the ecological significance, relative distribution, and transmission modes of the different analogs. In this study, we showed that a group of naphthalene-degrading isolates from a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-contaminated hillside soil were phenotypically and genotypically distinct from naphthalene-degrading organisms isolated from adjacent, more highly contaminated… CONTINUE READING
