Isolation and characterization of a denitrifying monocrotophos-degrading Paracoccus sp. M-1.

A bacterium strain, which is capable of degrading monocrotophos, was isolated from sludge collected from the bottom of a wastewater treatment system of a chemical factory, and named M-1. On the basis of the results of the cellular morphology, physiological and chemotaxonomic characteristics and phylogenetic similarity of 16S rDNA gene sequences, the strain… (More)
