Abstract: A Cnitrophenol degrading strain PNPl isolated from the El-Harrach River near Algiers (Algeria) was studied with respect to its growth behaviour. According to the morphological and biochemical characteristics this strain was assigned to Pseudomom putiah. Besides 4-nitrophenol, the strain also used 1.2-and 1,4-dihydroxybenzene, benzoate, 4-hydroxybenzoate and 3&dihydroxybenmate as sources of carbon and energy, degrading them exclusively via the ortho pathway. Pseudomom putidn PNPl degrades 4-nitrophenol through…
