Abstract

SUMMARY: Species of and , capable of oxidatively metabolizing nitrobenzoic acids and other aromatic compounds, were isolated from soil and polluted streams. The nitro group was eliminated principally as ammonia and arylamine but some nitrite appeared. The oxidation of both - and -nitrobenzoic acids was adaptive and was competitively inhibited by the -isomer.
