Dioxin catabolic genes are dispersed on the Terrabacter sp. DBF63 genome.


Reverse transcription-PCR of the dbfA1A2, dbfBC, and pht genes, encoding oxygenase component of multicomponent dioxygenase, meta cleavage enzyme and hydrolase, and phthalate-degrading enzymes, respectively, revealed their role in the aromatic compound degradation by Terrabacter sp. strain DBF63. The specific expression in strain DBF63 cells grown on… (More)
