Abstract
Three strains capable of mineralizing nonylphenol as sole carbon source were isolated from a sample of contaminated soil and characterized as two Pseudomonas spp. and a Stenotrophomonas sp. The two Pseudomonas spp. expressed characteristics typical of psychrophiles growing optimally of 10 °C and capable of growing at 0 °C. The Stenotrophomonas sp. was more likely psychrotrophic because it had an optimal temperature between 14 and 22 °C although it was not capable of growing at 4 °C. At 14 °C, one of the Pseudomonas spp. exhibited the highest rate of degradation of nonylphenol (4.4 mg l-1 d-1), when compared with axenic or mixed cultures of the isolates. This study represents, to the best of our knowledge, the first reported case of... (More)
