In various bacterial strains belonging to the Psubdivision of proteobacteria which are capable of degrading chlorinated monoaromatic compounds, chlorocatechol 1,2-dioxygenase genes were detected by PCR and Southern hybridization. Using PCR primers derived from the conserved sequence motifs of chlorocatechol 1,2-dioxygenase genes fdC, clcA and rcbC. PCR products of the expected size were obtained with the test strains, but not with negative control strains. The specificity of the PCR products was verified by h…
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 of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
