Purchase Biotransformations: Microbial Degradation of Health-Risk Compounds, Volume 32 - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBN , Book Edition: 1. Microbial biodegradation is the use of bioremediation and biotransformation methods to harness the naturally occurring ability of microbial xenobiotic metabolism to degrade, transform or accumulate environmental pollutants, including hydrocarbons (e.g. oil), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heterocyclic compounds (such as pyridine or quinoline.
Microbial degradation is often the primary process that regulates the aerobic decay of organophosphate pesticides. The main focus of the research described here encompasses basic science to discover pathways and evolutionary implications of aerobic biodegradation of organophosphate pesticide, malathion and nitroaromatic compound : Singh Kashmir, Singh Baljinder.

Book Description. Microbial Biodegradation of Xenobiotic Compounds examines and collects the recent information on the bioremediation technologies around the world. This book focuses on methods to decrease pollutants created by anthropogenic activities, industrial activities, and agricultural activities. ADVERTISEMENTS: Many kinds of xenobiotics (Gk. xenos = foreign) occur in the waste effluents produced by the manufacture and consumption of all the commonly used synthetic products. Xenobiotics that are released into the environment on a large scale are numerous different halogenated aliphatic and aromatic compounds, nitro-aromatics, phthalate esters, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

With an emphasis on metabolism, Microbial Degradation of Aromatic Compounds integrates information on metabolic pathways, enzymology, genetics, and molecular biology. It provides background and historical foundations for aromatic biodegradation research, and presents authoritative reviews of research that has been carried out with pure cultures and defined biochemical pathways.

The toxicity of these compounds to microorganisms is very important in the microbial degradation of hydrocarbons, but not many researchers have studied the mechanism of this toxic action.
Biodegradation is a major mechanism of removal of organic pollutants from a contaminated site. This review focuses on bacterial degradation pathways of Microbial Degradation of Aromatic Compounds book aromatic compounds. Catabolic. Microbial degradation of organic compounds. Included in this book are chapters on the degradation of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, furans, condensed thiophenes, halogenated compounds, phthalates and lignins.
Cookies on CAB Direct Like most websites we use by: The crucial step in their degradation is to overcome the huge resonance energy that stabilizes the aromatic ring. The microbial degradation of aromatic compounds Cited by: Such studies showed that Burkholderia xenovorans LB and Rhodococcus sp.
strain RHA1, have evolved pathways to degrade aromatic compounds, which are some of the toughest contaminants to eliminate. The bacteria have genes coding for deoxygenases to open the aromatic ring structures of these chemicals.
Aromatics derived from industrial activities often have functional groups such as alkyls, halogens and nitro groups. Biodegradation is a major mechanism of removal of organic pollutants from a contaminated site. This review focuses on bacterial degradation pathways of selected aromatic by: This contributed volume will provide in-depth knowledge of microbial degradation of various xenobiotic compounds including pesticides, chlorophenols, nitrophenols, chlorobenzenes, dyes and polycyclic aromatic compounds are widely spread in environment due to anthropogenic activities.
It is thus one of the rare books that provide a large image of the microbial metabolism potential for xenobiotic degradation. the book is of great interest, useful, and would be core reading for researchers and students exploring the microbial degradation capacities.” (Robert Duran, Environmental Science and Pollution Research, Vol.
39, ). Expert international authors critically review all of the most important topics in this exciting field.
Although other books covering this are currently available, this book is unique in that it is the first to review the area from a molecular biology and genomics perspective.
Topics covered include: aerobic and anaerobic biodegradation of aromatic compounds, molecular detection methods e.g. Growth-Associated Degradation of Aliphatics Diversity of Aromatic Compounds – Unity of Catabolic Processes Extension of Degradative Capacities Cometabolic Degradation of Organopollutants Overcoming the Persistence by Cooperation of Anaerobic and Aerobic Bacteria 3 Degradative Capacities of Fungi File Size: KB.
Metabolic Diversity in Bacterial Degradation of Aromatic Compounds. Using a function-driven metagenomic approach, we investigated the metabolic abilities of microbial communities in oil reservoirs. Here, we describe novel functional metabolic pathways involved in the biodegradation of aromatic compounds in a metagenomic library obtained from an oil reservoir.
Cupriavidus necator JMP is a model for chloroaromatics biodegradation, capable of mineralizing 2,4‐D, halobenzoates, chlorophenols and nitrophenols, among other aromatic compounds. We performed the metabolic reconstruction of aromatics degradation, linking the catabolic abilities predicted in silico from the complete genome sequence with the range of compounds that support Cited by: The microbial degradation of aromatic pollutants has been well characterized over a period of more than 30 years.
