Identification and functional characterization of a gene for the methanol : N,N'-dimethyl-4-nitrosoaniline oxidoreductase from Mycobacterium sp. strain JC1 (DSM 3803).

Abstract

Mycobacterium sp. strain JC1 is able to grow on methanol as a sole source of carbon and energy using methanol : N,N'-dimethyl-4-nitrosoaniline oxidoreductase (MDO) as a key enzyme for primary methanol oxidation. Purified MDO oxidizes ethanol and formaldehyde as well as methanol. The Mycobacterium sp. strain JC1 gene for MDO (mdo) was cloned, sequenced, and… (More)
