Bacterial communities degrading amino- and hydroxynaphthalene-2-sulfonates. A 6-aminonaphthalene-2-sulfonic acid (6A2NS)-degrading mixed microorganism community was isolated from a sample of watercourse Elbe water. the entire degradation of this xenobiotic compound is also delineate by a mutualistic interaction of 2 genus Pseudomonas strains isolated from this culture. One strain, BN6, may conjointly grow on 6A2NS in monoculture, however, with accumulation of black polymers. This organism established the initial conversion of 6A2NS into 5-aminosalicylate (5AS) through regioselective attack of the hydrocarbon skeleton within … Continue reading “News Update on Hydroxynaphthalene Research: Sep – 2019”
