Physical and Functional Characterization of the xy1XYZ Region From TOL Plasmid pDK1 and its Associated Downstream Regulatory Elements

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The nucleotide sequence for the pDKl TOL plasmid region encoding toluate-1,2-dioxygenase (Xy1XYZ, TO) was determined. TO is the first enzyme in the meta-cleavage operon, responsible for the conversion of toluates and benzoates to their carboxy-substituted diols. DNA sequence analysis revealed the presence of three open reading frames (ORF). The three ORFs correspond to xylX (1353 bp), xylY (486 bp) and xylZ (1008 bp), encoding predicted protein products of 51370 Da, 19368 Da and 36256 Da, respectively.
