ABSTRACTMost of our knowledge about pollutants and the way they are biodegraded in the environment has previously been shaped by laboratory studies using hydrocarbon-degrading bacterial strains isolated from polluted sites. In present study Gram-positive (Mycobacterium sp. IBB Po1 , Oerskovia sp. IBB Po2 , Corynebacterium sp. IBB Po3 ) and Gram-negative (Chryseomonas sp. IBB Po7 , Pseudomonas sp. IBB Po10 , Burkholderia sp. IBB Po12 ) bacteria, isolated from oily sludge, were found to be able to tolerate pure…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
