ABSTRACT
Pseudomonas monteilii LA-11, isolated in contaminated sediments of Ostrava lagoons (Czech Republic), is a new bacterial isolate, whose physiological properties of resistance have not been reported to date. Its taxonomic status has been confirmed on the grounds of genotype analyses. The article summarizes the findings on this bacterial strain and describes its basic morphological and biochemical characteristics accompanied by verified resistance towards As, Cd, Cr, Co, Cu, Fe, Hg, Li, Mg, Ni, Pb, and Zn. The high resistance values towards certain metals, such as Cd, Cu, Co, Pb, As and Hg, predestine the strain as promising in further practical applications, particularly in the processes of in situ bioremediation, leading to the attenuation of toxicity of anthropogenically contaminated environments.
