2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetate (2,4-D) in Alcaligenes eutrophus JMP134 (pJP4) is degraded via 2-chloromaleylacetate as an intermediate. The latter compound was found to be reduced by NADH in a maleylacetate reductase catalyzed reaction. Maleylacetate and chloride were formed as products of 2-chloromaleylacetate reduction, the former being funnelled into the 3-oxoadipate pathway by a second reductive step. There was no indication for an involvement of a pJP4-encoded enzyme in either the reduction or… CONTINUE READING
