Pseudomonas sp. strain U2 was isolated from oil-contaminated soil in Venezuela by selective enrichment on naphthalene as the sole carbon source. The genes for naphthalene dioxygenase were cloned from the plasmid DNA of strain U2 on an 8.3-kb BamHI fragment. The genes for the naphthalene dioxygenase genes nagAa (for ferredoxin reductase), nagAb (for ferredoxin), and nagAc and nagAd (for the large and small subunits of dioxygenase, respectively) were located by Southern hybridizations and by… CONTINUE READING
