Trichloroethylene (TCE) was metabolized by the natural microflora of three different environmental water samples when stimulated by the addition of either toluene or phenol. Two different strains of Pseudomonas putida that degrade toluene by a pathway containing a toluene dioxygenase also metabolized TCE. A mutant of one of these strains lacking an active toluene dioxygenase could not degrade TCE, but spontaneous revertants for toluene degradation also regained TCE degradative ability. These results implicate toluene dioxygenase in TCE metabolism. (Copyright (c) 1988, American Society for Microbiology.)
