Abstract

Laboratory-based experiments were carried out to establish feasibility of lux-marked biosensors for assessing in-situ bioremediation potential of 2,4-DCP contaminated soil. Results showed that the decreases in 2,4-DCP concentration in soil water extracts from soil inoculated with a 2,4-DCP degrader, corresponded directly to decreases in toxicity to lux-marked E. coli. Response of the biosensor was, therefore, intimately linked to mineralisation activity in inoculated soil. In addition, light output of P. putida 12708 luxCDABE correlated with 2,4-DCP concentration in spiked sterile soil during ageing and in a field contaminated soil undergoing remediation. Lux-modified bacteria may be used as rapid, sensitive and reliable reporters of 2,4-DCP bioremediation and ageing in soil systems, complementing chemical analyses.
