A metagenomic library of a petroleum-contaminated soil was constructed in a fosmid vector that allowed heterologous expression of metagenomic DNA. The library, consisting of 6.5 Gb of metagenomic DNA, was screened for extradiol dioxygenase (Edo) activity using catechol and 2,3-dihydroxybiphenyl as the substrates. Fifty-eight independent clones encoding(More)
The tetralin biodegradation genes of Sphingomonas macrogolitabida strain TFA are repressed by catabolite. Insertion mutants in which thn genes are transcribed in the presence of a preferential carbon source and tetralin, bear the insertion in phaC, encoding a poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) synthase, a key enzyme in PHB synthesis. Mutant complementation with(More)
