A bacterial isolate (0-1) which degrades different substituted benzenesulphonates was identified as a strain of Alcafigenes sp. using chemotaxonomic, DNA: DNA hybridization and serological methods. Its ability to mineralize orthanilic acid (2-aminobenzenesulphonate) is correlated with the presence of a 117 MDa plasmid, designated pSAH. Selective curing of pSAH resulted in the abolition of the orthanilic acid mineralization phenotype, which could be fully restored by re-establishment of pSAH. A… CONTINUE READING
