While many anaerobic microbial communities are capable of reductively dechlorinating tetrachloroethene
(PCE) and trichloroethene (TCE) to dichloroethene (DCE), vinyl chloride (VC), and finally ethene, the
accumulation of the highly toxic intermediates, cis-DCE (cDCE) and VC, presents a challenge for bioreme-
diation processes. Members of the genus Dehalococcoides are apparently solely responsible for dechlorination
beyond DCE, but isolates of Dehalococcoides each metabolize only a subset of PCE dechlorination intermediates
