Benzene dioxygenase, catalyzing the oxidation of benzene to cis-1,2-dihydroxy-cyclohexa-3,5-diene, comprises four polypeptides that are encoded by plasmid pHMT112 of Pseudomonas putida ML2. In this study, the nucleotide (nt) sequences of four genes encoding this enzyme (bedC1C2BA) were determined, and the amino acid (aa) sequences were deduced. The sequence showed significant homology with the chromosomally encoded benzene dioxygenase and toluene dioxygenase genes (73-77% for nt and 83-99% for… CONTINUE READING
