Isolation of a Pseudomonas Strain Resistant to Organic Solvents and Capable of Degrading Coplanar Polychlorinated Biphenyls
Biological treatment of waste polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) mixed with organic solvents (OSs) requires bacteria that have both OS tolerance and PCB-degrading capacity . Therefore, we tried to find such bacteria strongly capable of both tolerating OS and degrading PCBs . We screened eleven bacteria capable of degrading more than 70% (w/v) of KC-300 containing 10ppm PCB from 200 samples of soil and sea water taken from the mouth of Sagami river and elsewhere. We selected six of the 11 strainsdoi:10.4265/bio.3.57 fatcat:tqsmbisndjg5phfqtlk2fbmrmi
