[The ability of actinobacteria to assimilate n-alkanes under nitrate-reducing conditions].


PMID 24479308

Abstract

It has been established that the oil-oxidizing strains of actinobacteria--components of the preparation "Ekolan-M" are able to assimilate n-alkanes during microaerobic cultivation in nitrate-reducing conditions. After 7 days of growth in these conditions, the level of biodegradation of n-hexadecane of the investigated strains was 52.0%, which is 1.5 times less than for the same period in the aerobic cultivation. n-Hexadecane utilized by cells was completely mineralized to carbon dioxide, the amount of which in the gas phase reached 1.6% on the 9th day of growth.
