Metabolism of gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane by Arthrobacter citreus strain BI-100: Identification of metabolites.

Abstract

Growth characteristics of the aerobic bacterial strain Arthrobacter citreus BI-100 in mineral salts medium with gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane (gamma-HCH) as the sole source of carbon and degradation of gamma-HCH by the strain are reported. The highest yield of the bacteria is observed at a gamma-HCH concentration of 100 mg/L. At this concentration, the… (More)
