Abstract
A bacterial strain NB01, isolated from wastewater, was found to utilize nitrobenzene (NB) as the sole source of nitrogen, carbon, and energy. The strain was classified as a member of a high G+C Gram-positive group and identified as Mycobacterium chelonae based on an analysis of its 16S rRNA gene sequence. The strain grew on NB with a concomitant release of about 63% of the total available nitrogen as ammonia, suggesting a reductive degradation mechanism. The optimal pH and temperature for degradation were pH 7.0-8.0 and 30degreesC, respectively. The cell growth was retarded at NB concentrations above 1.8 mM. The degradation of NB followed Michaelis-Menten kinetics within the tolerance range, and the K. and maximum specific removal rate for NB were 0.33 mM and 11.04 h(-1), respectively.
