In cell extracts of Pseudaminobacter salicylatoxidans strain BN12, an enzymatic activity was detected which converted salicylate in an oxygen-dependent but NAD(P)H-independent reaction to a product with an absorbance maximum at 283 nm. This metabolite was isolated, purified, and identified by mass spectrometry and (1)H and (13)C nuclear magnetic resonance(More)
The gene coding for a dioxygenase with the ability to cleave salicylate by a direct ring fission mechanism to 2-oxohepta-3,5-dienedioic acid was cloned from Pseudaminobacter salicylatoxidans strain BN12. The deduced amino acid sequence encoded a protein with a molecular mass of 41,176 Da, which showed 28 and 31% sequence identity, respectively, to a(More)
The effectiveness of the electrical stimulation on the healing of an osteotomy was proved by determining the total alkaline phosphatase (AP) in the serum and its bone isoenzyme in rabbits. A non-stimulated animal group served as control. The changes appeared more distinctly by interference stimulation than by stimulation with bipolar rectangle impulses.
The bacterial catabolism of a technical formulation of alkylsulfonic acid phenyl esters employed as a general purpose plasticizer, Mesamoll, was elucidated. Two strains of the genus Rhodococcus were found able to utilize this substrate mixture as sole source of carbon and energy. Growth experiments along with enzymatic measurements indicated that both(More)
