Nocardioides sp. strain MTD22 degraded atrazine, ametryn and atraton, as did Arthrobacter aurescens strain TC1 and Nocardioides sp. strain C190. These strains contain trzN, a gene coding for TrzN, triazine hydrolase showing a broad substrate range. However, Nocardioides sp. strain AN3 degraded only atrazine despite containing trzN. These differences in s-triazine degradation are presumed to be due to differences in the amino acid sequences of TrzNs. Consequently, 1371 nucleotides of the trzN… CONTINUE READING
