Biodegradation of organochlorine pesticides by soil bacteria


Journal of Scientific and Industrial Research 57(10/11): 838-843
Biodegradation of organochlorine pesticides by soil bacteria
Four bacterial strains isolated from agricultural soils possess the ability to degrade the organochlorine pesticide, gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane (gamma-HCH). It was observed that when the strains are grown in mineral salt medium containing gamma-HCH as the sole carbon source, HCH concentration gradually decreases and a number of metabolites are produced as detected by thin layer chromatography, GC and HPLC.
