Investigations were carried out to evaluate the level of incorporation of radiolabeled 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) and metabolites into the bacterial biomass of two different bacterial species after cometabolically mediated TNT transformation. Biotransformation experiments with 14C-TNT indicated that TNT was not mineralized; however, carbon derived from TNT became associated with the cells. It was found that more than 42% of the initially applied radiolabel was associated with the cell biomass… CONTINUE READING
