- ... Strain YZ-1 was isolated from activated sludge and identified as Ochrobactrum anthropi. This strain was capable of degrading pyrethroids pesticides, suggesting the presence of degrading enzymes. In the present study, a novel esterase gene pytZ was cloned from the genomic library of YZ-1 successfully. The pytZ contained an open reading frame of 606bp encoding a pyrethroid-hydrolyzing carboxylestera ...
