Abstract

AIMS:

We report the identification of the bisphenol A (BPA) biodegradability in Streptomyces sp. strain isolated from river water.

METHODS AND RESULTS:

The water samples spiked with BPA (1 mg l(-1)) and the culture solution of Streptomyces sp. strain were placed at 30 degrees C for 10 days and were analysed by high-performance liquid chromatography. A half-life for BPA degradation was between 3 and 4 days. The removal rate of BPA was >90% for 10 days.

CONCLUSIONS:

These results show that the Streptomyces sp. strain isolated from river water has high BPA degradability.

SIGNIFICANCE AND IMPACT OF THE STUDY:

To our knowledge, this is the first report of BPA degradation by Streptomyces sp. strain.
