An aerobic Gram-negative bacterium identified as Pseudomonas vesicularis was isolated from soil contaminated with 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) and 1,3,5-trinitrobenzene (TNB). This bacterium used TNB as the sole source of nitrogen. The TNB was metabolized within 80 h of incubation. The major metabolites produced were dinitroaniline, dinitrobenzene (DNB), nitroaniline, nitrobenzene (NB), and ammonia. The concentrations of DNB and NB produced in the culture medium were nearly stoichiometric. The… CONTINUE READING
