Abstract A bacterial strain capable of utilizing pentachlorophenol (PCP) as sole source of carbon and energy for growth was isolated from enrichment cultures containing 100 mg/l PCP in a mineral salts medium inoculated with contaminated soil from a lumber treatment waste site. The isolate, designated strain SR3, was identified as a species of Pseudomonas by virtue of its physiological and biochemical characteristics. Mineralization of PCP by Pseudomonas sp. strain SR3 was demonstrated by loss of detectable PCP from growth medium, stoichiometry of chloride release (5 equivalents of chloride per mole of PCP), and formation of biomass consistent with the concentration of PCP mineralized. PCP-induced cells of strain SR3 showed elevated rates of oxygen consumption in the presence of PCP, and with different chlorinated phenols, with complete degradation of 2,3,5,6-, 2,3,6-, 2,4,6-, 2,4-, and 2,6-chloro-substituted phenols. Concentrations of PCP up to 175 mg/liter supported growth of this organism, but maximal rates of PCP removal were observed at a PCP concentration of 100 mg/liter. Based on its degradative properties, Pseudomonas sp. strain SR3 appears to have utility in bioremediation of soil and water contaminated with PCP.
