Evolution of Sphingomonad Gene Clusters Related to Pesticide Catabolism Revealed by Genome Sequence and Mobilomics of Sphingobium herbicidovorans MH

Single-strain mobilomic sequence analysis uncovered plasmids and insertion sequence-associated circular intermediates in this environmentally important bacterium and enabled the description of evolutionary models for pesticide degradation in strain MH and related organisms.

Living in an Extremely Polluted Environment: Clues from the Genome of Melanin-Producing Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. pectinolytica 34melT

Genome analysis revealed a high metabolic versatility, the capability to cope with diverse stress agents, and the lack of several virulence factors found in pathogenic Aeromonas, which may explain the ability of this microorganism to live in an extremely polluted environment.

The proposed stratification is a novel attempt at classifying and predicting 2-oxoglutarate dependent function and will aid efforts by investigators to screen and characterize putative 2-OG dependent sequences by helping to compare data to a comprehensive list of HMM profiles of catalytic domains.

Herbicide-Resistant Crops: Utilities and Limitations for Herbicide-Resistant Weed Management

The strengths and weaknesses of anticipated weed management options and the best management practices that growers need to implement in HR crops are reviewed to maximize the long-term benefits of current technologies and reduce weed shifts to difficult-to-control and HR weeds.



Site-directed Mutagenesis of 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid/α-Ketoglutarate Dioxygenase

Variants of TfdA were created to examine the roles of putative metal-binding residues and the functions of the other seven histidines in this protein and it was concluded that His-113, Asp-115, and His-262 are likely metal ligands in TFDA and that his-213 may aid in catalysis or binding of 2,4-D.

PCR-RFLP analysis of 16S rRNA, tfdA and tfdB genes reveals a diversity of 2,4-D degraders in soil aggregates

The results demonstrate the involvement of diverse bacterial species and genes in 2,4-D degradation within a soil and demonstrate that the degrading genes were distributed amongst various bacterial groups prior to any enrichment.

Detection of chlorocatechol 1,2‐dioxygenase genes in proteobacteria by PCR and gene probes

It is concluded that the PCR primer set is more suitable than the hybridization with pJP4-derived gene probes for the detection of diverse chlorocatechol 1,2-dioxygenase genes in proteobacteria.

Enantioselective degradation of the herbicide mecoprop [2-(2-methyl-4-chlorophenoxy) propionic acid] by mixed and pure bacterial cultures

A consortium of three bacteria was isolated from top soil through their capacity to utilise the chlorinated, aromatic herbicide mecoprop as a single growth substrate and A. denitrificans was able to grow on the herbicide as the sole source of carbon and energy.

Isolation of phenoxy herbicide‐degrading Rhodoferax species from contaminated building material

Two bacterial strains isolated from contaminated concrete debris which exhibit the metabolic capability to degrade 2,4-chlorinated and 4-chloro-2-methyl-substituted phenols and phenoxyalkanoic acids including phenoxyacetate and Phenoxypropionate derivatives showed strong similarity to Rhodoferax fermentans.

Purification and Characterisation of the Enantiospecific Dioxygenases from Delftia acidovorans MC1 Initiating the Degradation of Phenoxypropionate and Phenoxyacetate Herbicides

Two α-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenases were isolated and purified from Delftia acidovorans MCl, catalysing the cleavage of the ether bond of various phenoxyalkanoate herbicides, characterised by excess substrate inhibition kinetics.

Development and Application of PCR Primers for the Detection of the tfd Genes in Delftia acidovorans P4a Involved in the Degradation of 2,4-D

According to BLAST analyses, the partial sequences of tfdA and tfdB exhibited a 94-99% degree of identity with the homologous sequences of the 2,4-D-degrading strains Achromobacter xylosoxidans subsp.
