Isolations of 3-chlorobenzoate (3CBA)-degrading aerobic bacteria under reduced O2 partial pressures yielded organisms which metabolized 3CBA via the gentisate or the protocatechuate pathway rather than via the catechol route. The 3CBA metabolism of one of these isolates, L6, which was identified as an Alcaligenes species, was studied in more detail. Resting-cell suspensions of L6 pregrown on 3CBA oxidized all known aromatic intermediates of both the gentisate and the protocatechuate pathways… CONTINUE READING
