Genetic and functional analysis of the styrene catabolic cluster of Pseudomonas sp. strain Y2.


The chromosomal region of Pseudomonas sp. strain Y2 involved in the conversion of styrene to phenylacetate (upper catabolic pathway) has been cloned and sequenced. Four catabolic genes, styABCD, and two regulatory genes, stySR, were identified. This gene cluster when transferred to Escherichia coli W confers to this phenylacetate-degrading host the ability… (More)
