  • Six species of free-living nitrogen fixing bacteria, Azomonas agilis, Azospirillum brasilense, Azospirillum lipoferum, Azotobacter chroococcum, Azotobacter vinelandii , and Beijerinckia mobilis , were surveyed for their ability to grow and fix N 2 using aromatic compounds as sole carbon and energy source.

  • This diagram illustrates combination patterns of reaction modules for biodegradation of aromatic compounds, consisting of three main types of ring dihydroxylation modules, followed by meta- or ortho-cleavage modules, together with an optional preprocessing module for converting methyl group to carboxyl group on the aromatic ring.

  • carbon
  • SG-4G is capable of using carbendazim, 2-aminobenzimidazole, and 2-hydroxybenzimidazole as sole carbon and energy sources for growth. (ethz.ch)
  • reaction with dioxygen
  • 3-9 Although the reaction with dioxygen is thermodynamically favourable, the electronic configuration of the O 2 molecule creates a strong kinetic barrier that requires activation, which is useful to prevent any spontaneous reaction of O 2 with organic molecules. (rsc.org)
  • Nitrogen
  • All heteroatoms (N3O) of the ligand are coordinated to the iron center in complex 1 with two pyridine nitrogen atoms on the axial bonds, while one of the pyridyl arms of the ligand is left uncoordinated in complex 2. (diva-portal.org)
  • salicylate
  • Hamzah RY, Tu S-C (1981) Determination of the position of mono-oxygenation in the formation of catechol catalyzed by salicylate hydroxylase. (springer.com)
  • activity
  • The spectrop h oto metric titration experiment indicates the relatively low demand of the external base (0.8 equiv based on Fe3+) for attaining the highest dioxygenase activity of complex 1. (diva-portal.org)
  • This hypothesis was supported by the results from enzyme assays of the crude cell extract of the consortium revealing catechol 1,2-dioxygenase activity which converted catechol and 4-chlorocatechol to cis,cis-muconic acid and 3-chloro-cis,cis-muconic acid respectively. (kent.ac.uk)
  • iii) Lignin is a complex organic biopolymer mainly present in plants in close association with carbohydrates like cellulose and hemicellulose, its main activity is to provide plants with structural stability, impermeability and resistance towards microbial attack [ 3 ]. (ijbs.com)
  • ligands
  • Extradiol members utilize ferrous iron as the active redox state, and this center is commonly coordinated octahedrally through a 2-His-1-Glu motif with labile water ligands occupying empty positions. (wikipedia.org)
  • hydroxylase
  • Chalcone is then isomerized to naringenin by chalcone isomerase which is oxidized to eriodictyol by flavonoid 3'- hydroxylase and further oxidized to taxifolin by flavanone 3-hydroxylase. (wikipedia.org)
  • structural motif
  • The 3-methylcatechol structural motif is rare in natural products. (wikipedia.org)
  • This widespread structural motif is called the 2-His-1-carboxylate facial triad, and is found in many metalloproteins. (rsc.org)
