Transformation of phenol into phenylalanine by a methanogenic consortium.


The conversion by a methanogenic consortium of phenol into phenylalanine, with benzoic and phenylpropionic acid as intermediates, was investigated. When (sup14)C-labelled phenol was fed to the consortium, the radioactivity was mostly transferred into methane and CO(inf2), but 4% of the radioactivity was found in the water fraction after extraction of the… (More)
