Pseudomonas sp. strain ADP metabolizes atrazine to cyanuric acid via three plasmid-encoded enzymes, AtzA, AtzB, and AtzC. The first enzyme, AtzA, catalyzes the hydrolytic dechlorination of atrazine, yielding hydroxyatrazine. The second enzyme, AtzB, catalyzes hydroxyatrazine deamidation, yielding N-isopropylammelide. In this study, the third gene in the atrazine catabolic pathway, atzC, was cloned from a Pseudomonas sp. strain ADP cosmid library as a 25-kb EcoRI DNA fragment in Escherichia coli… CONTINUE READING
