Degradation of 2,4,6-trichlorophenol via chlorohydroxyquinol in Ralstonia eutropha JMP134 and JMP222.

Abstract

The aim of this work was to study the catabolic pathway of the pollutant 2,4,6-trichlorophenol in Ralstonia eutropha JMP134. 2,6-dichlorohydroquinone was detected as transient intermediate. Enzymatic transformations of 6-chlorohydroxyquinol to 2-chloromaleylacetate, and of this compound to maleylacetate were detected in crude extracts. Therefore, the… (More)
