The kinetic parameters associated with the microbial dehalogenation of 3-chlorobenzoate, 3,5-dichlorobenzoate, and 4-amino-3,5-dichlorobenzoate were measured in anoxic sediment slurries and in an enriched methanogenic culture grown on 3-chlorobenzoate. The initial dehalogenation of the substrates exhibited Michaelis-Menten kinetics. The apparent K(m) values for the above substrates ranged from 30 to 67 muM. The pattern of degradation, however, was unusual. The enrichment culture accumulated… CONTINUE READING
