Ritalahti, Kirsti M.
MetadataShow full item record
The invention is directed to novel reductive dehalogenase genes encoding for reductive dehalogenases which are capable of dehalogenating halogenated organic compounds and may be useful in the bioremediation of pollutants. In particular, the invention provides an isolated polynucleotide of a novel vinyl chloride dehalogenase gene (bvcA). The novel vinyl chloride dehalogenase gene encodes a reductive dehalogenase that is capable of the complete reduction of vinyl chloride to ethene.
