Title: Biodegradation Of The Herbicide Diuron In Soil By Indigenous Actinomycetes.
Author: Esposito, E

Abstract: Three actinomycete strains isolated from soil treated with 2,4-D were able to degrade the herbicide Diuron in vitro. Strain CCT 4916 was the most efficient, degrading up to 37% of applied Diuron (100 mg Kg-1 soil) in 7 days, as measured by HPLC and UV/VIS spectroscopy. All strains showed protease and urease activity; intracellular activity of metapyrocatechase and pyrocatechase were not found. Actinomycete strain CCT 4916 produced manganese peroxidase, which could be potentially related to degradation of Diuron.
