Reconstructing the evolutionary history of nitrotoluene detection in the transcriptional regulator NtdR.

Abstract

Many toxic man-made compounds have been introduced into the environment, and bacterial strains that are able to grow on them are ideal model systems for studying the evolution of metabolic pathways and regulatory systems. Acidovorax sp. strain JS42 is unique in its ability to use 2-nitrotoluene as a sole carbon, nitrogen, and energy source for growth. The… (More)
