Plant litter enhances degradation of the herbicide MCPA and increases formation of biogenic non-extractable residues in soil

Nowak, Karolina M. ; Miltner, Anja ; Poll, Christian ; Kandeler, Ellen ; Streck, Thilo ; Pagel, Holger (2020-06-22)

Amendment of soils with plant residues is common practice for improving soil quality. In addition to stimulated microbial activity, the supply of fresh soluble organic (C) from litter may accelerate the microbial degradation of chemicals in soils. Therefore, the aim of this study was to test whether the maize litter enhances degradation of 4-chloro-2-methylphenoxyacetic acid (MCPA) and increase...

Dual Element (C/Cl) Isotope Analysis Indicates Distinct Mechanisms of Reductive Dehalogenation of Chlorinated Ethenes and Dichloroethane in Dehalococcoides mccartyi Strain BTF08 With Defined Reductive Dehalogenase Inventories

Franke, Steffi ; Seidel, Katja ; Adrian, Lorenz ; Nijenhuis, Ivonne (2020-07-17)

Dehalococcoides mccartyi strain BTF08 has the unique property to couple complete dechlorination of tetrachloroethene and 1,2-dichloroethane to ethene with growth by using the halogenated compounds as terminal electron acceptor. The genome of strain BTF08 encodes 20 genes for reductive dehalogenase homologous proteins (RdhA) including those described for dehalogenation of tetrachloroethene (PceA...
