Degradation of 4-nitrophenol, 2-chloro-4-nitrophenol, and 2,4-dinitrophenol by Rhodococcus imtechensis strain RKJ300.
Lab-scale soil microcosm studies demonstrated that the organism was capable of degrading a mixture of nitrophenols simultaneously, indicating its applicability toward in situ bioremediation of contaminated sites. Expand
Chromosome-encoded gene cluster for the metabolic pathway that converts aniline to TCA-cycle intermediates in Delftia tsuruhatensis AD9.
Results suggest that, in strain AD9, aniline is degraded via catechol through a meta-cleavage pathway by the chromosome-encoded tad gene cluster. Expand
Plasmid-encoded genes specifying aniline oxidation from Acinetobacter sp. strain YAA.
Results suggest that in strain YAA aniline is degraded via catechol through a pathway involving meta-cleavage of the benzene-ring by plasmid-encoded genes including atdA. Expand
Mechanism of 4-Nitrophenol Oxidation in Rhodococcus sp. Strain PN1: Characterization of the Two-Component 4-Nitrophenol Hydroxylase and Regulation of Its Expression
Functional analysis, in addition to the sequence analysis, revealed that the 4-NP hydroxylase system belongs to the two-component flavin-diffusible monooxygenase family. Expand
Cloning and characterization of a 4-nitrophenol hydroxylase gene cluster from Rhodococcus sp. PN1.
A 4-nitrophenol (4-NP)-degrading bacterium was isolated from activated sludge and identified as a Rhodococcus sp. This bacterium, designated as strain PN1, could utilize 4-NP as a sole carbon,Expand
Cloning and sequencing of a gene cluster for the Meta-cleavage pathway of aniline degradation in Acinetobacter sp. strain YAA
A 17.0-kb Sac I fragment, which contains a large region just downstream of the aniline dioxygenase genes of Acinetobacter sp. Expand
Reductive dehalogenation mediated initiation of aerobic degradation of 2-chloro-4-nitrophenol (2C4NP) by Burkholderia sp. strain SJ98
Results obtained during this study revealed that strain SJ98 can degrade 2-chloro-4-nitrophenol (2C4NP) and utilize it as sole source of carbon, nitrogen, and energy under aerobic conditions. Expand
Molecular cloning and sequencing of the phenol hydroxylase gene from Pseudomonas putida BH
A genomic library of the phenol-degrading bacterium Pseudomonas putida BH was constructed in the broad host range cosmid pVK100 and introduced into Escherichia coli HB101 and revealed that the pheA gene cluster encodes a multicomponent phenol hydroxylase. Expand
Characterization of alkylphenol degradation gene cluster in Pseudomonas putida MT4 and evidence of oxidation of alkylphenols and alkylcatechols with medium-length alkyl chain.
Results suggest that Pseudomonas putida MT4 is a very useful strain in the biodegradation of a wide range of APs with a medium-length alkyl chain, which known nonylphenol-degrading Sphingomonas strains have never degraded. Expand
Identification and characterization of another 4-nitrophenol degradation gene cluster, nps, in Rhodococcus sp. strain PN1.
Results indicate that this nps gene clusters, in addition to the nph gene cluster, is also involved in 4-NP degradation in strain PN1. Expand
