OXIDATIVE METABOLISM OF PHENANTHRENE AND ANTHRACENE BY SOIL PSEUDOMONADS. THE RING-FISSION MECHANISM.
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.
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.
Oxidative metabolism of naphthalene by soil pseudomonads. The ring-fission mechanism.
Bacterial metabolism of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetate.
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.
New Pathways in the Oxidative Metabolism of Aromatic Compounds by Micro-Organisms
