Some studies on trichloroacetate-decomposing soil bacteria

Two strains of soil bacteria were isolated in selective trichloroacetate medium. Both strains grew feebly in all media and were of doubtful systematic position although possibly related to Arthrobacter. Trichloroacetate and its theoretical dehalogenation product oxalate could serve as carbon sources, the former under release of the halogen in ionic form… (More)
