The fsbA gene controlling the first step of 4-chlorobenzoic acid metabolism in the Gram-positive soil bacterium Arthrobacter globiformis KZT1 has been cloned and analysed in Escherichia coli and showed that a polypeptide with Mr = 58 kDa can be the fcbA product(s).
Degradation of 2-chlorobenzoic and 2,5-dichlorobenzoic acids in pure culture byPseudomonas stutzeri
A strain ofPseudomonas stutzeri KS25 utilizing 2-chlorobenzoic and 2,5-dichlorobenzoic acids as the sole carbon and energy source was isolated from polychlorophenol-contaminated soil and sewage,…

The results suggest that 10-methyl branched fatty acids may participate in the adaptation of R. opacus to lipophilic aromatic compounds.
[Utilization of 3-chlorobenzoic acid by Acinetobacter calcoaceticus].
A strain of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus assimilating 3-chlorobenzoic acid (3-CBA) as a sole source of carbon and energy was isolated from soil near Moscow. When 3-CBA is utilized, 2-chloro-cis,…
[Utilization of 4-chlorobenzoic acid by Arthrobacter globiformis].
A strain of Arthrobacter globiformis utilizing 4-chlorobenzoic acid as a sole source of carbon and energy was isolated by the method of enrichment cultures from vegetable garden soil near Moscow, making possible that dehalogenization occurs at the first step of preparative metabolism.
Degradation of 2-chlorobenzoic and 2,5-dichlorobenzoic acids in soil columns byPseudomonas stutzeri
The heterocontinuous flow cultivation technique was used for the study of 2-chlorobenzoic and 2,5-dichlorobenzosic acid degradation in soil columns inoculated with Pseudomonas stutzeri, and the presence of the haloaromatics increased the survival of strain KS25 in soil.
