During the past decade, numerous microorganisms capable of degrading pesticides have been isolated, and detoxification processes based on these live biocatalysts have been developed. Recently, novel detoxification strategies using genetically engineered microorganisms with extended degradative capabilities have been investigated and, in some cases, shown to be more effective. One promising approach for the detoxification of organophosphate pesticides uses genetically engineered Escherichia coli… CONTINUE READING
