Abstract

An estuarine methanotroph was isolated from sediment enrichments and designated Methylobacter sp. strain BB5.1. In cells grown on medium with added copper, oxidation of methane and trichloroethylene occurred with similar K(s) values, but the V(max) for trichloroethylene oxidation was only 0.1% of the methane oxidation V(max). Cells grown on low-copper medium did not oxidize trichloroethylene and showed a variable rate of methane oxidation.
