The sulfate-reducing highly enriched culture N47 is capable to anaerobically degrade naphthalene, 2-methylnaphthalene, and 2-naphthoic acid. A proteogenomic investigation was performed to elucidate the initial activation reaction of anaerobic naphthalene degradation. This lead to the identification of an alpha-subunit of a carboxylase protein that was two-fold up-regulated in naphthalene-grown cells compared to 2-methylnaphthalene-grown cells. The putative naphthalene carboxylase subunit showed… CONTINUE READING
