Bacterial transformation of polychlorinated biphenyls






Biotechnology and biodegradation: 369-388

Bacterial transformation of polychlorinated biphenyls

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.
