Original Abstract

Heavy metals are toxic and can be harmful for organisms. For this reason, a number of organisms including bacteria develop processes which are able to withstand the effects of these pollutants. An accumulation of heavy metals in different bacterial strains in soil has been observed and could be used in the process of remediation of soils contaminated by heavy-metal-pollutants. In this study, Streptomyces, well known for their capacity to accumulate heavy metals from the environment, were selected.
