Sites polluted with organic compounds frequently contain inorganic pollutants such as heavy metals. The latter might inhibit the biodegradation of the organics and impair bioremediation. Chromosomally located polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) catabolic genes ofAlcaligenes eutrophus A5,Achromobacter sp. LBS1C1 andAlcaligenes denitrificans JB1 were introduced into the heavy metal resistantAlcaligenes eutrophus strain CH34 and related strains by means of natural conjugation.
