Abstract

Two oil-degrading bacteria identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Micrococcus luteus were isolated From crude-oil-polluted soils in Nigeria. The organisms were grown on n-hexadecane and sodium succinate: and then examined For the presence of hydrocarbon inclusions. Inclusion bodies were found in n-hexadecane-grown cells and were absent in succinate-grown cells. Formation of hydrocarbon inclusion bodies appears to be a general phenomenon among hydrocarbon utilizers.
