Sphingomonas sp. strain HV3 (formerly Pseudomonas sp. HV3), which degrades aromatics and chloroaromatics, harbors a mega-plasmid, pSKY4. A sequenced 4 kb fragment of the plasmid reveals a novel gene organization for catechol meta-pathway genes. The putative meta operon starts with the cmpF gene encoding a 2-hydroxymuconic semialdehyde hydrolase. The gene has a 6 bp overlap with the previously characterized ring-cleavage gene, catechol 2,3-dioxygenase, cmpE. Downstream of cmpE is a 429 bp open… CONTINUE READING
