Evidence is presented for the presence in propanesulfonate-grown Comamonas acidovorans strain P53 of a cytoplasmically located sulfonatase that does not sediment at 100,000 × g. This enzyme catalysed the sulfonate-dependent oxidation of NADH or NADPH, indicating a monooxygenase that effects the addition of molecular oxygen to C3-C6 1-alkanesulfonates. Enzyme activity was proportional to protein concentration only above approximately 2 mg cytoplasmic fraction protein ml–1, suggesting that the… CONTINUE READING
