Mycobacterium vanbaalenii PYR-1 is capable of degrading a number of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) to ring cleavage metabolites via multiple pathways. Genes for the large and small subunits of a pyrene dioxygenase, nidA and nidB, respectively, were previously identified in M. vanbaalenii PYR-1 [Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 67 (2001) 3577]. A library of the M. vanbaalenii PYR-1 genome was constructed in a fosmid vector to identify additional genes involved in PAH degradation. Twelve fosmid… Expand
Complete and Integrated Pyrene Degradation Pathway in Mycobacterium vanbaalenii PYR-1 Based on Systems Biology
TLDR
Analysis of pyrene metabolism in M. vanbaalenii PYR-1 indicates that this bacterium degrades pyrene to central intermediates through o-phthalate and the beta-ketoadipate pathway. Expand
Genomic analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon degradation in Mycobacterium vanbaalenii PYR-1
TLDR
A pathway in which HMW PAHs are degraded into the β-ketoadipate pathway through protocatechuate and then mineralized to CO2 via TCA cycle is proposed and identified 67 and 23 genes involved in PAH degradation and T CA cycle pathways, respectively, to be expressed as proteins. Expand
Novel organization of genes in a phthalate degradation operon of Mycobacterium vanbaalenii PYR-1.
TLDR
This study is the first report of a phthalate degradation operon in Mycobacterium spp. Expand
Transcriptional response of Mycobacterium sp. strain A1-PYR to multiple polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon contaminations.
TLDR
Results showed that ABC-type transporters probably played important roles in the transport of PAHs and their metabolites through cell membrane, and [4Fe-4S] ferredoxin might be essential for dioxygenases (NidAB and PdoA2B2) to achieve oxidative activities. Expand
Horizontal transfer of PAH catabolism genes in Mycobacterium: evidence from comparative genomics and isolated pyrene-degrading bacteria.
TLDR
The homologous genomic regions in four other PAH-degrading Mycobacterium are examined, presenting evidence for past horizontal gene transfer events and Duplications and putative integrase and transposase genes suggest past gene shuffling. Expand
Heterologous Expression of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Ring-Hydroxylating Dioxygenase Genes from a Novel Pyrene-Degrading Betaproteobacterium
ABSTRACT A betaproteobacterium within the family Rhodocyclaceae previously identified as a pyrene degrader via stable-isotope probing (SIP) of contaminated soil (designated pyrene group 1 or PG1) wasExpand
Study of Genes Relating To Degradation of Aromatic Compounds and Carbon Metabolism in Mycobacterium Sp. Strain KMS
TLDR
RT-PCR analysis of total RNA isolated from KMS cells grown with or without pyrene showed that theence of pyrene increased the transcript accumulation of 20 of the predicted chro mosomal and plasmid located genes encoding pyrene-induced proteins. Expand
Molecular characterization of cytochrome P450 genes in the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon degrading Mycobacterium vanbaalenii PYR-1
Mycobacterium vanbaalenii PYR-1 has the ability to degrade low- and high-molecular-weight polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). In addition to dioxygenases, cytochrome P450 monooxygenases haveExpand
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon degrading gene islands in five pyrene-degrading Mycobacterium isolates from different geographic locations.
TLDR
RT-PCR analysis of total RNA isolated from KMS cells grown with or without pyrene showed that the presence of pyrene increased the transcript accumulation of 20 of the predicted chromosome- and plasmid-located genes encoding pyrene-induced proteins, suggesting these mycobacteria initially acquired these genes by horizontal gene transfer.

Genetic expression of pobA and fabHB in Bacillus licheniformis M2-7 in the presence of benzo[a]pyrene
TLDR
It is observed that the genes pobA and fabHB were overexpressed after 3 h under induction with benzo[a]pyrene, suggesting that this strain could use these genes during the metabolism of this PAH, plus it does it in a faster time than that reported for other bacterial genera. Expand

The phn Genes of Burkholderiasp. Strain RP007 Constitute a Divergent Gene Cluster for Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Catabolism
TLDR
A divergent set of PAH catabolic genes, the phn genes, which although isofunctional to the classical nah-like genes, show very low homology, are reported, which suggests that phnS is a LysR-type transcriptional activator and phnR is a member of the sigma54-dependent family of positive transcriptional regulators.
