Biochemical And Molecular Aspects Of Bioremediation

Given the limited reactivity of hydrocarbons and their chlorinated analogs, complex biochemical pathways are required for their biodegradation. This involves the synthesis of multiple enzymes and their ability to act in concert in the correct sequence to bring about conversion of the hydrocarbon to a central metabolite (Fig. 1.25). A common control strategy for the bacterium is to group the genes coding for the enzymes in operons. The operons can
