Intact cells of Pseudomonas cepacia G4 completely degraded trichloroethylene (TCE) following growth with phenol. Degradation kinetics were determined for both phenol, used to induce requisite enzymes, and TCE, the target substrate. Apparent Ks and Vmax values for degradation of phenol by cells were 8.5 microM and 466 nmol/min per mg of protein, respectively. At phenol concentrations greater than 50 microM, phenol degradation was inhibited, yielding an apparent second-order inhibitory value, KSI… CONTINUE READING
