Bacterial degradation of cyclohexane participation of a co-oxidation reaction

  journal={Antonie van Leeuwenhoek},
AbstractComplete biodegradation of cyclohexane was demonstrated to occur in a system containing two strains of Pseudomonad bacteria, viz an n-alkane oxidizer and a microorganism utilizing cyclohexanol. n-Heptane is also present as a substrate for the former. Neither bacterial strain was capable of utilizing cyclohexane individually.This biodegradation of cyclohexane occurs in two steps:(a)the conversion of cyclohexane into cyclohexanol by the n-alkane oxidizer (co-oxidation) and(b)utilization… Expand

Novel cyclohexane monooxygenase from Acidovorax sp. CHX100
A novel cytochrome P450 monooxygenase (CYP450chx) which catalyzed the transformation ofcyclohexane to cyclohexanol and was successfully cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli JM109. Expand
Isolation of Brachymonas petroleovorans CHX, a novel cyclohexane-degrading beta-proteobacterium.
A new bacterium that grows aerobically on cyclohexane was isolated from the wastewater plant of a petroleum refinery and is tentatively assigned to the Brachymonas genus as BrachyMonas petroleovorans CHX. Expand

Isolation and characterization of two novel strains capable of using cyclohexane as carbon source
Two strains capable of degrading cyclohexane were isolated from the soil and sludge of the wastewater treatment plant of the University of Stuttgart and a biotrickling filter system andPhylogenetic analysis has indicated that the two gene clusters belong to different groups. Expand
Proposed involvement of a soluble methane monooxygenase homologue in the cyclohexane-dependent growth of a new Brachymonas species.
High-throughput mRNA differential display was used to identify genes induced by cyclohexane in Brachymonas petroleovorans CHX, a recently isolated beta-proteobacterium that grows on cyclo Hexane, and it was proposed that this butane monooxygenase homologue carries out the oxidation of cyclo hexane into cyclohessanol during growth.

Biodegradability of branched alkylbenzene sulphonates
Branched alkylbenzene sulphonates (ABS) widely used surfactants in the 1950s and early 1960s were subsequently replaced by linear forms in response to evidence that the former are recalcitrant.Expand


Cometabolism of m-chlorobenzoate by an Arthrobacter.
The data indicate that cometabolism by the arthrobacter results from the formation of products by its benzoate-oxiding enzyme system that are not acted upon by the catechol-metabolizing enzymes of the bacterium. Expand

Adaptation of Bacteria from One Type of Hydrocarbon to Another
The most rapid growth of fresh isolates from soil samples occurred with the normal paraffins C8 – C18, but growth on normal C5 – C8 hydrocarbons was much less rapid, which may be explained by the known toxicity of the lower alkanes to bacteria because of their lipid solvent properties. Expand
