Genetic organization of the catabolic plasmid pJP4 from Ralstonia eutropha JMP134 (pJP4) reveals mechanisms of adaptation to chloroaromatic pollutants and evolution of specialized chloroaromatic…
PJP4 plasmid was able to capture chromosomal genes and form hybrid plasmids with the IncP-1 alpha plasmID RP4, which reveals mechanisms of bacterial adaptation to degrade pollutants.

The metabolic reconstruction of aromatics degradation is performed, linking the catabolic abilities predicted in silico from the complete genome sequence with the range of compounds that support growth of this bacterium.
Genetic Characterization of 2,4,6-Trichlorophenol Degradation in Cupriavidus necator JMP134
Transcriptional fusion studies demonstrated that TcpR activates the expression of the tcp genes, responding specifically to 2,4,6-TCP.

The tfdD(II)-encoded chloromuconate cycloisomerase exhibited special kinetic properties, with high activity against 3-chloromu Conate and poor activity against 2-chloro)muconate and unsubstituted muconate, thus explaining the different phenotypic behaviors of R. eutropha strains containing different tfd gene modules.
Genomic analysis of the potential for aromatic compounds biodegradation in Burkholderiales.
This genomic analysis underscores the impressive catabolic potential of this bacterial lineage, comprising nearly all of the central ring-cleavage pathways reported so far in bacteria and most of the peripheral pathways involved in channelling of a broad diversity of aromatic compounds.

The genetic diversity and distribution of natural populations of the cyanobacteria Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus within oxic and suboxic waters of the eastern tropical Pacific are assessed using cloning and sequencing, and terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (T-RFLP) analyses applied to the 16S-23S rRNA internal transcribed spacer region.
The Complete Multipartite Genome Sequence of Cupriavidus necator JMP134, a Versatile Pollutant Degrader
It is possible to state that a broad metabolic capability is a general trait for Cupriavidus genus, however certain specialization towards a nutritional niche seems to be shaped mostly by the acquisition of “specialized” plasmids.

Changes in Epiphytic Bacterial Communities of Intertidal Seaweeds Modulated by Host, Temporality, and Copper Enrichment
It is shown that the structure of bacterial communities epiphytic on macroalgae is hierarchically determined by algal species > temporal changes > copper levels, and that the composition and structure of the bacterial communities also varied through time.
