Bacterial strains have k e n isolated from contaminated concrete debris which exhibit the metabolic capability to degrade 2.4-chlorinated and 4-chloro-2-methyl-suhstituted phenols and phenoxyalkanoic acids including phenoxyacetate and phenoxypropionate derivatives. These strains were taxonomically identified. Two of them were found to helong to the#-suhgroup of the proteobacteria and showed strong similarity to Rhodoferur fermentuns. Preliminary investigations by PCR amplification using respective primers rev…
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.
