The exposure of men to the nematocide dibromochloropropane (DBCP) has caused prolonged oligo- and azoospermia, which occasionally reverses spontaneously. We recently demonstrated that in testes of rats treated with a dose of DBCP sufficient to reduce the percentage of tubules...

Trihalogenated propanes are toxic and recalcitrant organic compounds. Attempts to obtain pure bacterial cultures able to use these compounds as sole carbon and energy sources were unsuccessful. Both the haloalkane dehalogenase from Xanthobacter autotrophicus GJ10 (DhlA) and that from Rhodococcus...
