Biodegradation of the mixtures of 4-chlorophenol and phenol by Comamonas testosteroni CPW301.
A 4-chlorophenol (4-CP)-degrading bacterium, strain CPW301, was isolated from soil and identified as Comamonas testosteroni. This strain dechlorinated and degraded 4-CP via a meta-cleavage pathway. CPW301 could also utilize phenol as a carbon and energy source without the accumulation of any metabol...
Metabolism of curcumin--studies with [3H]curcumin.
Radioactivity was detectable in blood, liver and kidney following dosage with 400, 80 or 10 mg of [3H]curcumin. The major route of elimination of the label was the feces; the urinary excretion of the label was very low regardless of the dose. At the lower doses of 80 mg and 10 mg of [3H]-curcumin, m...
