Rhodobacter sphaeroides OU5 utilized l-phenylalanine as sole source of nitrogen for growth. The metabolites of l-phenylalanine catabolism, i.e. 4-hydroxy phenylalanine (l-tyrosine), 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA), 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl-pyruvic acid (DOPP), 3,4-dihydroxyphenyllactic acid (DOPLA), 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl-acetic acid (DOPAc) and 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid (PC), were identified using liquid chromatography-mass spectroscopy (LC-MS). With 2-oxoglutarate as an amino acceptor, DOPA… Expand
l-Tryptophan catabolism by Rubrivivax benzoatilyticus JA2 occurs through indole 3-pyruvic acid pathway
TLDR
The proposed pathway sequential conversion of indole-3-pyruvic acid to the end product of pyrogallol was identified, including an enzymatic step that would convert isatin to benzaldehyde by an enzyme yet to be identified. Expand
Purification and characterization of 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine oxidative deaminase from Rhodobacter sphaeroides OU5.
TLDR
DOPA oxidative deaminase is functional at low concentrations of the substrate (< 100 micromol.L(-1)) and is independent of NADH. Expand
Potential pharmacological applications of enzymes associated with bacterial metabolism of aromatic compounds
Many purple anoxygenic bacteria contribute significantly to the catabolic and anabolic processes in the oxic/anoxic zones of several ecosystems. However, these bacteria are incapable of degrading theExpand
Pyomelanin production: Insights into the incomplete aerobic l-phenylalanine catabolism of a photosynthetic bacterium, Rubrivivax benzoatilyticus JA2.
TLDR
This study revealed an incomplete catabolism of phenylalanine; absence of ring cleavage gene, homogentisate dioxygenase leading to homogENTisate accumulation thereby pyomelanin synthesis in strain JA2, and identified the purified brown-pigment as a melanin. Expand
L-Dopa (L-3,4-Dihydroxyphenylalanine): A Non-Protein Toxic Amino Acid in Mucuna pruriens Seeds
TLDR
Evaluating the available information regarding the L-Dopa content of M. pruriens seeds found it to cause some serious gastrointestinal disturbances such as nausea, vomiting and anorexia and also induce favism, if consumed by humans or animals. Expand
Identification and characterization of the PhhR regulon in Pseudomonas put ida
Pseudomonas putida is a soil microorganism that utilizes aromatic amino acids present in root exudates as a nitrogen source. We have previously shown that the PhhR transcriptional regulator inducesExpand
Identification and characterization of the PhhR regulon in Pseudomonas putida.
TLDR
Pseudomonas putida is a soil microorganism that utilizes aromatic amino acids present in root exudates as a nitrogen source and the PhhR transcriptional regulator is a global regulator responsible for the activation of genes essential for phenylalanine degradation, phenylAlanine homeostasis and other genes of unknown function.

Metabolism of L-Phenylalanine and L-Tyrosine by the Phototrophic Bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus
TLDR
The phototrophic bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus utilizes the aromatic amino acids L-phenylalanine and L-tyrosine as nitrogen source, although it is able to degrade them to homogentisate, probably by unspecific hydroxylation reactions. Expand
Studies on DOPA Transaminase of Alcaligenes faecalis
Some enzymatic properties were examined on the transaminase (DOPA transaminase) which catalyzes the reaction between 3,4-dihydroxy phenyl pyruvate (DOPP) and certain amino acids to formExpand
Effective production of 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl-L-alanine (L-DOPA) with Erwinia herbicola cells carrying a mutant transcriptional regulator TyrR.
TLDR
This work has circumvented the problem of using recombinant E. herbicola cells carrying a mutant transcriptional regulator TyrR, which is capable of activating the tpl promoter in the absence of L-tyrosine. Expand
Microbial photodegradation of aminoarenes metabolism of 2-amino-4-nitrophenol byRhodobacter capsulatus
TLDR
Rhodobacter capsulatus B10, a bacterium unable to assimilate nitrate, releases negligible amounts of nitrite when growing with 2-amino4-nitrophenol, thus suggesting that an oxygenase, nitrite-producing activity is not involved in the metabolization of the compound. Expand
Degradation of p-nitrophenol by the phototrophic bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus
TLDR
It is concluded that the xenobiotic is used as a carbon source by R. capsulatus, but that only the strain able to assimilate nitrite (E1F1) can use p-nitrophenol as a nitrogen source. Expand
Role for draTG and rnf Genes in Reduction of 2,4-Dinitrophenol by Rhodobacter capsulatus
TLDR
Results indicate that NtrC regulates dinitrophenol reduction in R. capsulatus, either directly or indirectly, by controlling expression of the Rnf proteins, which seems to supply electrons for both nitrogen fixation and DNP reduction. Expand
PURIFICATION AND PROPERTIES OF DIHYDROXYPHENYLALANINE TRANSAMINASE FROM GUINEA PIG BRAIN
TLDR
It was confirmed by FONNUM, HAAVALDSEN and TANGEN (1964) who showed that the DOPA transaminase could be inactivated and thus removed from the other aromatic amino acid transaminases by acetone precipitation. Expand
