Degradation of thiocyanate by a bacterial coculture

Biotechnology Letters 16(4): 425-430
Degradation of thiocyanate by a bacterial coculture
A bacterial coculture capable of growing on thiocyanate has been isolated from thiocyanate adapted bacterial suspension of urban sewage treatment plant. The co-culture is composed of two bacteria identified as species Acinetobacter johnsonii and Pseudomonas diminuta. The two end products of thiocyanate conversion are ammonia and sulfate. The thiosulfate has been identified as the sulfur intermediate product of the conversion of thiocyanate to sulfate.
