Induction and Purification of Phenol Hydroxylase from Tricosporon Cutaneum

Phenol, derived principally from industrial effluents, is a particularly troublesome contaminant of surface waters which are used for the public water supply. Disinfection by chlorination of phenol-contaminated water produces chlorophenols which give an unpleasant odor and taste, and can ultimately lead to off-flavor problems in estuarine fish and shell-fish (1). Mainly because of these problems the U.S. Public Health Service drinking water standards limit the content of phenols to 1 ppb (1µg/1), and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations will soon apply the same limit to all surface waters.
