Mycobacterium vaccae strain JOB-5 cometabolized 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) in the presence of propane as a carbon and energy source. Two novel oxidized metabolites, as well as several known reduced products, were generated during catabolism of TNT byM. vaccae. During the cometabolic process, there was transient production of a brown chromophore. This compound was identified as 4-amino-2,6-dinitrobenzoic acid. WhenM. vaccae was incubated with [14CTNT and propane, 50% of the added radiolabel was… CONTINUE READING
