A pure bacterial strain capable of aerobic biodegradation of fluorobenzene (FB) as the sole carbon and energy source was isolated by selective enrichment from sediments collected from a polluted site. 16S rRNA and fatty acid analyses support that strain F11 belongs to a novel genus within the alpha-2 subgroup of the Proteobacteria, possibly within a new clade related to the order Rhizobiales. In batch cultures, growth of strain F11 on FB led to stoichiometric release of fluoride ion. Maximum… 
Isolation and characterization of a Rhodococcus strain able to degrade 2-fluorophenol
TLDR
Experiments with cell-free extracts and partially purified enzymes indicated that the first step of 2- Fluorophenol metabolism was conversion to 3-fluorocatechol, suggesting an unusual pathway for fluoroaromatic metabolism.
Mineralization of 4-fluorocinnamic acid by a Rhodococcus strain
TLDR
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first time that mineralization of 4-FCA as the sole carbon source by a single bacterial culture is reported.
Isolation, identification, and degradation performance of a PFOA-degrading strain.
The perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)-degrading strain YAB1 was isolated from the soil near a perfluorinated compound production plant through acclimation and enrichment culture, using PFOA as the sole
Co-metabolic degradation of chlorobenzene by the fluorobenzene degrading wild strain Labrys portucalensis
Abstract Due to the widespread use of chlorobenzene (CB), environmental contamination with this compound is a major concern. A previously isolated bacterium named Labrys portucalensis (strain F11),
Bacterial degradation of moxifloxacin in the presence of acetate as a bulk substrate.
TLDR
The results obtained in this study suggest that strain F11 is a promising microorganism for the treatment of waters contaminated with MOX, where it could be used for bioaugmentation/bioremediation purposes.
Isolation of a Xanthobacter sp. degrading dichloromethane and characterization of the gene involved in the degradation
TLDR
A bacterial strain able to degrade dichloromethane (DCM) as the sole carbon source was isolated from a wastewater treatment plant receiving domestic and pharmaceutical effluent, for the first time a Xanthobacter sp.

A detailed classification of a novel bacterial strain, designated F11(T), capable of degrading fluorobenzene as a sole carbon and energy source, was performed by using a polyphasic approach. This
Degradation of perfluorooctanyl sulfonate by strain Pseudomonas plecoglossicida 2.4-D
A bacterial strain has been isolated from soil contaminated by waste from petrochemical production. Based on its cultural-morphological, physiological-biochemical properties and an analysis of the
Degradation of difluorobenzenes by the wild strain Labrys portucalensis
TLDR
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first time biodegradation of 1,3-DFB as a sole carbon and energy source, and cometabolic degradation of1,4-DFBs, by a single bacterium, is reported.
Factors influencing 4-fluorobenzoate degradation in biofilm cultures of Pseudomonas knackmussii B13.
TLDR
The application of the MABR to the removal of fluorinated xenobiotics from wastewater, employing a Pseudomonas knackmussii monoculture to degrade the model compound 4-fluorobenzoate is reported on, highlighting the importance of fluoride ion accumulation on biofilm performance when applied to organofluorine remediation.

Isolation and Characterization of Diverse Halobenzoate-Degrading Denitrifying Bacteria from Soils and Sediments
TLDR
The ability to utilize different halobenzoates under denitrifying conditions is ubiquitously distributed in theroteobacteria and that these bacteria are widely distributed in soils and sediments.

Anaerobic degradation of fluorinated aromatic compounds
TLDR
Anaerobic enrichment cultures with sediment from an intertidal strait as inoculum were established under denitrifying, sulfate-reducing, iron-red reducing and methanogenic conditions to examine the biodegradation of mono-fluorophenol and mono- fluorobenzoate isomers to show no degradation of the fluorophenols.
Toxicity of chlorobenzene on Pseudomonas sp. strain RHO1, a chlorobenzene-degrading strain
TLDR
Cleavage of 3-chlorocatechol by catechol 1,2-dioxygenase seems to be the critical step in the metabolism of chlorobenzene, and metabolites also seem to function as toxic compounds.

TLDR
A bacterial consortium that can degrade chloro- and nitrophenols has been isolated from the rhizosphere of Phragmitis communis and revealed a heterogeneous structure with a network of channels throughout the biofilm, partially occupied by microbial exopolymer structures.
Effect of Organic Solvents on the Yield of Solvent-Tolerant Pseudomonas putida S12
TLDR
Solvent-tolerant microorganisms are useful in biotransformations with whole cells in two-phase solvent-water systems, but energy-consuming adaptation processes as well as the uncoupling effect of the solvents reduce the yield of the tolerant cells.
