Strain T1 is a facultative bacterium that is capable of anaerobic toluene degradation under denitrifying conditions. While 80% of the carbon from toluene is either oxidized to carbon dioxide or assimilated into cellular carbon, a significant portion of the remainder is transformed into two dead-end metabolites. These metabolites were produced simultaneous to the mineralization of toluene and were identified as benzylsuccinic acid and benzylfumaric acid. Identification was based on comparison of… CONTINUE READING
