Bacterial transformation of polychlorinated biphenyls

Bacterial transformation of polychlorinated biphenyls

Biotechnology and biodegradation: 369-388

The role of aerobic bacteria as versatile and effective agents for biodegrading polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) is reviewed. Four natural isolates were shown to degrade many tetra- and pentachlorobiphenyls and some hexachlorobiphenyls. The enzymes responsible for PCB metabolism in these organisms fall into 2 genetically distinct classes that differ markedly in congener reactivity preferences.
