We quantified the effects of matric and solute waterpotential on toluene biodegradation by Pseudomonasputida mt-2, a bacterial strain originally isolated fromsoil. Across the matric potential range of 0 to – 1.5 MPa,growth rates were maximal for P. putida at – 0.25MPa and further reductions in the matric potentialresulted in concomitant reductions in growth rates.Growth rates were constant over the solute potential range0 to – 1.0 MPa and lower at – 1.5 MPa. First ordertoluene depletion rate… CONTINUE READING
