Biochemical and molecular characterization of novel PAH-degrading bacteria isolated from polluted soil and sludge

Biochemical and molecular characterization of novel PAH-degrading bacteria isolated from polluted... AbstractPolycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) containing more than three rings are mainly less biodegradable. Therefore, the isolation of PAHs-degrading bacteria is of great importance to be augmented for bioremediation of polluted sites with PAHs. PAHs-degrading bacteria were isolated from contaminated sites of an oil refinery. The strains were confirmed by biochemical tests and 16S rRNA, which were Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (two strains), Thermomonas koreensis (three strains), Achromobacter (two strains), Pseudomonas stutzeri (one strain), Azospirillum brasilense (one strain) and Brevibacillus brevis (one strain). The isolate strains can be applied as a bacterial consortium for purification of polluted soil with high levels of PAHs. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Petroleum Science and Technology Taylor & Francis
