Species: Aromatoleum aromaticum EbN1
The enzymes involved in the 1-ethyl-4-hydroxybenzene degradation pathway of Aromatoleum aromaticum EbN1 are encoded in a single large operon ( approximately 15 kb). They include a p-cresol methylhydroxylase-like protein (encoded by pchC and pchF), proposed to be a p-ethylphenol methylhydroxylase, two predicted alcohol dehydrogenases (encoded by chnA and ebA309), a biotin-dependent carboxylase (encoded by xccA, xccB and xccC), an acetoacetyl-CoA synthetase-like protein ( acsA) and a thiolase ( tioL).
None of these enzymes has been verified biochemically yet. However, expression of these proteins was shown to be upregulated in cells adapted to anaerobic growth with 1-ethyl-4-hydroxybenzene and 4-hydroxyacetophenone [Wohlbrand08].
