The mechanism of uptake of phenanthrene by Mycobacterium sp. strain RJGII-135, a polycyclic hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium, was examined with cultures grown on phenanthrene (induced for phenanthrene metabolism) and acetate (uninduced). Washed cells were suspended in aqueous solutions of [9-(14)C]phenanthrene, and then the cells were collected by filtration… CONTINUE READING
