The biodegradation of two halohydrins (1,3-dichloro-2-propanol and 3-chloro-1,2propanediol) by P. putida DSM 437 was investigated. Intact cells of previously acclimatized P. putida DSM 437 as well as cell-free extracts were used in order to study the degradation kinetics. When whole cells were used, a maximum biodegradation rate of 3-CPD (v max = 1.28 . 10 -5 mmol mg -1 DCW h -1 ) was determined, which was more than 4 times higher than that of 1,3-DCP. However, the affinity towards bothdoi:10.15255/cabeq.2016.924 fatcat:6hsc4yrdgrdbdaxbeyjhddenum
