Abstract

The diversity of bacterial -halocarboxylic acid (HA) dehalogenases from a polluted soil was investigated. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primers designed to amplify group I and group II dehalogenase (deh) gene sequences were used to screen bacterial isolates, nine ?-Proteobacteria and one -Proteobacterium, from soil enrichments. Primers successfully amplified deh sequences from all 10 HA-utilising isolates. Bacteria isolated at 15 or 30
