One strain of ectomycorrhizal fungi, Xerocomus chrysenteron, had been investigated for its ability to degrade 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(4-chlorophe-nyl) ethane (DDT) by measuring unlabeled DDT and identifying its metabolites, and determining the mineralization of [(13)C]DDT in pure cultures. After 45d incubation, about 55%...

Extensive biodegradation of 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(4-chlorophenyl)ethane (DDT) by the white rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium was demonstrated by disappearance and mineralization of [14C]DDT in nutrient nitrogen-deficient cultures. Mass balance studies demonstrated the formation of polar and water-soluble metabolites during degradation. Hexane-extractable metabolites identified...

A study into levels of contamination by organochlorine compounds (insecticides and PCBs) and heavy metals (Cd and Pb) in the water/sediment system of the Southeast Regional Park (SERP) in Madrid, Spain, has been carried out. Residue levels of xenobiotics were...
