Molecular cloning and functional characterization of the genes encoding benzoate and p-hydroxybenzoate degradation by the halophilic Chromohalobacter sp. strain HS-2.

Abstract

Chromohalobacter sp. strain HS-2 was isolated from salted fermented clams and analyzed for the ability to grow on benzoate and p-hydroxybenzoate as the sole carbon and energy source. HS-2 was characterized as moderately halophilic, with an optimal NaCl concentration of 10%. The genes encoding the benzoate metabolism were cloned into a cosmid vector… (More)
