Two novel catechol 1,2-dioxygenase (C 1,2-O) genes have been isolated from an Acinetobacter radioresistens strain that grows on phenol or benzoate as sole carbon and energy source. Designated as catA(A) and catA(B), they encode proteins composed of 314 and 306 amino acids, whose deduced sequences indicate that they have approximately 53% identity, whereas their NH2-terminal and COOH-terminal regions have no sequences in common. This may explain their different thermal and pH stability… CONTINUE READING
