The Impact of Physiological State and Residual Organic Carbon on the Biotransformation of 17α-ethinylestradiol by Heterotrophic Bacteria
Abstract:Experiments were performed to investigate the fate of 17α-ethinylestradiol (EE2) in the presence of continuous flow cultivated heterotrophs. Results indicate that physiological state and residual organic matter affected the biodegradation of EE2 by heterotrophs. As such, mineralization of EE2 and metabolites generated by ammonia oxidizing bacteria is ultimately governed by heterotrophic activity.
