Microbial metal toxicity had been attributed to metal concentration and bioavailability, the later factor being dependent on speciation; the distribution of metals into various physicochemical forms. This research was aimed at establishing a correlation between the nature of predominating ligands in natural environments which can associate with metals and influence toxicities to biodegrading microbes. Cadmium, a known inducer of oxidative stress, was chosen because of the nature of the oil… Expand

Effect of pH on cadmium toxicity, speciation, and accumulation during naphthalene biodegradation.
Lowering pH of a microbiological medium from 7 to 4 decreased cadmium toxicity during naphthalene biodegradation by a Burkholderia sp. Cadmium speciation and cadmium accumulation in the system wereExpand
Quantitative assessment of the effects of metals on microbial degradation of organic chemicals
TLDR
Effects of heavy metals on aerobic microbial degradation rates of organic chemicals appeared to be considerably more inhibitory to the biodegradation of an organic chemical than high concentrations of microbially toxic organics studied previously. Expand
Impact of metals on the biodegradation of organic pollutants.
TLDR
Recent approaches to increasing organic biodegradation in the presence of metals involve reduction of metal bioavailability and include the use of metal-resistant bacteria, treatment additives, and clay minerals. Expand
Naphthalene biodegradation in a cadmium cocontaminated system: Effects of rhamnolipid, pH, and divalent cations
A model cocontaminated system was developed to determine whether a metalcompiexing biosurfactant, rhamnolipid, could reduce metal toxicity to allow enhanced organic biodegradation by a BurkholderiaExpand
Metal Toxicity Reduction in Naphthalene Biodegradation by Use of Metal-Chelating Adsorbents
TLDR
The toxicity of cadmium associated with naphthalene biodegradation was shown to be reduced significantly by using the modified-clay complex and Chelex resin, while unmodified clay has no significant impact on this reduction. Expand

Effect of added heavy metal ions on biotransformation and biodegradation of 2-chlorophenol and 3-chlorobenzoate in anaerobic bacterial consortia
TLDR
Dehalogenation, aromatic degradation, and methanogenesis in these anaerobic bacterial consortia showed differential sensitivities to the heavy metal ions added, indicating that the presence of heavy metals can affect the outcome of an aerobic bioremediation of aromatic pollutants. Expand
