Comamonas testosteroni T-2, grown in terephthalate (TER)-salts medium, synthesizes inducible enzymes that convert TER to (1R,2S)-dihydroxy-3,5-cyclohexadiene-1,4-dicarboxylic acid (DCD) and protocatechuate (PC). Anion-exchange chromatography of cell extracts yielded two sets of fractions, R and Z, that were necessary for oxygenation of TER to DCD; we termed this activity the TER dioxygenase system (TERDOS). An NAD(+)-dependent DCD dehydrogenase, which converted DCD to PC, overlapped all… CONTINUE READING
