Pseudomonas Putida Siderophores: Investigation of Regulatory Mechanisms of Pyridine-2,6-Dithocarboxylic Acid Grant uri icon



  • The use of carbon tetrachloride (CT) as a grain fumigant in postharvest storage during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s led to extensive contamination of vadose zone soils and underlying groundwater at grain storage facilities in cereal-producing states including Idaho. This project examines bacterial siderophore pyridine-2,6-bis(thiocarboxylic acid) (pdtc) that has a great potential for the use in bioremediation of CT and toxic metal contamination in groundwater and soil.
