Man-made polychlorinated phenols such as pentachlorophenol (PCP) have been used extensively since the 1920s as preservatives to prevent fungal attack on wood. During this time, they have become serious environmental contaminants. Despite the recent introduction of PCP in the environment on an evolutionary time scale, PCP-degrading bacteria are present in soils worldwide. The initial enzyme in the PCP catabolic pathway of numerous sphingomonads, PCP-4-monooxygenase (PcpB), catalyzes the para… Expand

A comprehensive overview of bacteria and fungi used for pentachlorophenol biodegradation
TLDR
This review focuses on PCP degradation by various aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms with emphases on the biological and chemical aspects and will analyze intermediate products, processes and enzymes involved in the degradation of PCP in different environmental conditions and at various PCP concentrations.

Fungi in Pentachlorophenol Adsorption and Degradation:Novel Bioremediation and Biotechnological Tools
Pentachlorophenol (PCP) has been used worldwide as a wood preservative and pesticide. PCP toxicity and extensive use has placed it among the worst environmental pollutants, and therefore itsExpand
Analysis of Two Gene Clusters Involved in the Degradation of 4-Fluorophenol by Arthrobacter sp. Strain IF1
TLDR
The results indicate that strain IF1 transforms 4-FP to hydroquinone by a two-component monooxygenase system of which one component provides reduced flavin adenine dinucleotide at the expense of NADH and the other catalyzes para-hydroxylation of 4- FP and other 4-substituted phenols. Expand
Expression of Pentachlorophenol-Degradative Genes of Sphingobium chlorophenolica ATCC39723 in Escherichia coli
TLDR
Remarkable achievement of high expressions of Sphingobium PCP-degradative genes (pcpA, pcpB, pCPC and pcpD) has been revealed in E.coli. Expand

TLDR
Comparative analyses demonstrate that sphingomonads generally use similar degradative pathways as other groups of microorganisms but deviate from competing microorganisms by the existence of multiple hydroxylating oxygenases and the conservation of specific gene clusters. Expand
Degradation of 4-fluorophenol by Arthrobacter sp. strain IF1
TLDR
Results indicate that the biodegradation of 4-FP starts with a 4- FP monooxygenase reaction that yields benzoquinone, which is reduced to hydroquinone and further metabolized via the β-ketoadipic acid pathway. Expand
Biodegradation of phenol and its derivatives by engineered bacteria: current knowledge and perspectives
TLDR
Engineered bacteria which efficiently degrade phenolic compounds were constructed in laboratories using various approaches such as cloning the catabolic genes in multicopy plasmids, the introduction of heterologous genes or broadening the substrate range of key enzymes by mutagenesis. Expand

Organization and Regulation of Pentachlorophenol-Degrading Genes in Sphingobium chlorophenolicum ATCC 39723
TLDR
The organization and regulation of the genes involved in PCP degradation to 3-oxoadipate were documented and the organization of the pcp genes is unusual because the four PCP-degrading genes were found to be located at four discrete locations. Expand

Evidence for Natural Horizontal Transfer of the pcpB Gene in the Evolution of Polychlorophenol-Degrading Sphingomonads
TLDR
A comparative analysis of the 16S rDNA and pcpB gene trees suggested that a recent horizontal transfer of the pCPB gene was involved in the evolution of the catabolic pathway in the Kärkölä sphingomonads. Expand
Phylogeny of Sphingomonas species that degrade pentachlorophenol
TLDR
Molecular analyses revealed that the PCP degradation pathway in these four strains was rather conserved, leading to a phylogenetic analysis using 16S rDNA, which revealed a much closer phylogenetic relationship between these organisms than traditional classification indicated. Expand

TLDR
P-NMR spectra of UG25 and UG30 cell suspensions exposed to PCP showed lower intracellular ATP levels and a more acidic cytoplasmic pH relative to untreated cells, which may explain the lack of cell growth in the presence of high PCP concentrations. Expand
