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…
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.
