Isolation and Characterization of Dehalobacter sp. Strain TeCB1 Including Identification of TcbA: A Novel Tetra- and Trichlorobenzene Reductive Dehalogenase

Dehalobacter sp. strain TeCB1 was isolated from groundwater near Sydney, Australia, that is polluted with a range of organochlorines. The isolated strain is able to grow by reductive dechlorination of 1,2,4,5-tetrachlorobenzene to 1,3- and 1,4-dichlorobenzene with 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene being the intermediate daughter product. Transient production of 1,2… CONTINUE READING
