The enzyme hydroxyquinol 1,2-dioxygenase, which catalyzes ortho cleavage of hydroxyquinol (1,2,4-trihydroxybenzene) to produce maleylacetate, was purified from Escherichia coli cells containing the tftH gene from Burkholderia cepacia AC1100. Reduction of the double bond in maleylacetate is catalyzed by the enzyme maleylacetate reductase, which was also purified from E. coli cells, these cells containing the tftE gene from B. cepacia AC1100. The two enzymes together catalyzed the conversion of… CONTINUE READING
