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. (C) 1998 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
