Expression of the phenol degradation pathway in Pseudomonas putida strain PaW85 requires coordinated transcription of the plasmid-borne pheBA operon encoding catechol 1,2-dioxygenase and phenol monooxygenase, respectively, and the chromosomally encoded catechol degradation catBCA operon. Transcriptional activation from the pheBA and catBCA promoters is regulated by CatR and the catechol degradation pathway intermediate cis,cis-muconate. Here it is shown that physiological control mechanisms are… CONTINUE READING
