A compost mixture consisting of 50% 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT)-contaminated soil, 30% chopped sugar beet, and 20% straw was anaerobically percolated for 19 days with tap water. Thereafter, the water was drained off, and the mixture was aerated fo...

Enterobacter cloacae PB2 was originally isolated on the basis of its ability to utilize nitrate esters, such as pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN) and glycerol trinitrate, as the sole nitrogen source for growth. The enzyme responsible is an NADPH...
