- Bacterial and fungal strains were isolated from enrichment cultures using diethylphthalate, diethylterephthalate, or ethylene glycol dibenzoate as sole carbon sources. Aureobacterium, Flavobacterium, and Micrococcus species were isolated from diethylphthalate enrichments; Rhodococcus and Xanthomonas species were isolated from diethylterephthalate enrichments; Rhodococcus and Fusarium species were isolated from ethylene glycol dibenzoate enrichments.
