In a gram-negative isolate (DSM 9103) able to grow with EDTA as the sole source of carbon, nitrogen, and energy, the first two steps of the catabolic pathway for EDTA were elucidated. They consisted of the sequential oxidative removal of two acetyl groups, resulting in the formation of glyoxylate. An enzyme complex that catalyzes the removal of two acetyl groups was purified and characterized. In the reaction, ethylenediaminetriacetate (ED3A) was formed as an intermediate and N,N… CONTINUE READING
