Burkholderia xenovorans LB400, Cupriavidus necator H850, and Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes KF707 are bacterial strains able to mineralize biphenyl and to co-oxidize many of its halogenated derivatives (PCBs). Only strain LB400 also mineralizes a few mono- and dichlorobiphenyls, due to the presence of a functioning chlorocatechol pathway. Here, we used a(More)
Novosphingobium sp. HR1a is able to grow using diverse polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) as the sole carbon sources. We have identified two transposons that contain genes encoding several ring-hydroxylating dioxygenases and we have demonstrated the crucial role of one of these dioxygenases in the PAH metabolism in this strain; a mutant in the large(More)
