of a wide range of substrates may present a competitive advantage, especially under nutrient-limiting conditions (Egli, 1995).
Progress and Challenges in Developing Metabolic Footprints from Diet in Human Gut Microbial Cometabolism
2006) establish that the plants render an important function on the phytoremediation of organic compounds like the hydrocarbons because i) The rhizosphere improves the properties of the soil through the injection of air and the introduction of nutrients that encourage microbial diversity, ii) the interaction between the plant and the microorganisms promotes the cometabolism
of the contaminants that forces the activation of several metabolic options, and iii) the transportation of water to the superior areas of the plant works in favor of the degradation or immobilization of the contaminant in order to produce a degradation in the interior and exterior of the plant.
of Cr (VI) by Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 produces cell-associated reduced chromium and inhibits growth.
Also, the phyllosphere is a harsh environment that does not favor enhanced cooperative interactions between microbial species that could degrade the pollutant through cometabolism
Phenol and toluene-degrading microbial populations from an aquifer in which successful trichloroethene cometabolism
Regarding the microbiota performance into the mixture of PAHs (Figure 1), one additional specie was detected at week-2 (band 1), remaining on all period and suggesting ability to survive in several complex PAHs under cometabolism
, probably growing by using intermediate metabolites as carbon source produced by other microorganisms when degrading PAHs.
lactis biovar diacetylactis in cometabolism
of citrate and glucose.
In the presence of phenol as a growth substrate, 2-cp and 4-cp could be transformed through cometabolism
of benzothiophene and 3-methylbenzothiophene.
Editorial for special issue on aerobic cometabolism
Gilbert worked in Professor David Crowley's lab with funding from the TSRTP, where they searched for a nontoxic chemical that could induce cometabolism
of PCBs, since it is known that some bacteria can biodegrade PCB only in conjunction with another substance.
