The transformation of quinoline, isoquinoline and 3-, 4-, 6- and 8-methylquinoline by Desulfobacterium indolicum was compared with that of the N-containing analogues indole and 1-, 2-, 3- and 7-methylindole. The metabolites were identified using high-performance liquid chromatography with UV detection, thin-layer chromatography, combined gas chromatography/mass spectrometry and proton NMR spectroscopy. All degraded compounds were initially hydroxylated at position 2 by D. indolicum. A new… CONTINUE READING
