Microbial catabolic pathways for complex aromatics
This thesis concerns the microbial degradation of recalcitrant aromatic compounds, and the enzymes responsible for that degradation. The two foci are guaiacylglycerol-β-guaiacyl ether (GGE), which is a model compound representing a key intermediate in the deconstruction of lignin, and 2,4-dinitroanisole (DNAN), which is a widely used component of explosives. The degradation of these compounds is of interest both because of the insights it provides into the evolution of catabolic pathways and...[Show more]
