Physiological properties and substrate specificity of a pentachlorophenol-degradingPseudomonas species

  title={Physiological properties and substrate specificity of a pentachlorophenol-degradingPseudomonas species},
  author={Sol M. Resnick and Peter J. Chapman},
A bacterial strain capable of utilizing pentachlorophenol (PCP) as sole source of carbon and energy for growth was isolated from enrichment cultures containing 100 mg/l PCP in a mineral salts medium inoculated with contaminated soil from a lumber treatment waste site. The isolate, designated strain SR3, was identified as a species ofPseudomonas by virtue of its physiological and biochemical characteristics. Mineralization of PCP byPseudomonas sp. strain SR3 was demonstrated by loss of… CONTINUE READING
