OXIDATIVE METABOLISM OF PHENANTHRENE AND ANTHRACENE BY SOIL PSEUDOMONADS. THE RING-FISSION MECHANISM.
TLDR
The Fe(2+)-dependent oxygenase responsible for cleavage of all the o-dihydroxyphenol derivatives appears to be catechol 2,3-oxygenase, and is a constitutive enzyme in the Pseudomonas strains used.
The meta cleavage of catechol by Azotobacter species. 4-Oxalocrotonate pathway.
TLDR
Catechol was metabolized through 2-hydroxymuconic semialdehyde by cell-free extracts of benzoate-grown Azotobacter Strains and the findings described here are discussed in connection with the two previously reported meta cleavage pathways for the oxidation of catechol in Pseudomonas strains.
Trease and Evans
Bacterial metabolism of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetate.
TLDR
Dechlorination at the 4(p)-position of the aromatic ring must therefore take place at some stages before ring fission, and pathways of metabolism of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetate are discussed.
Anaerobic degradation of aromatic compounds.
