Identification of novel transaminases from a 12-aminododecanoic acid-metabolizing Pseudomonas strain

Wilding, Matthew; Walsh, Ellen; Dorrian, Susan Jane; Scott, Colin


A Pseudomonas species [Pseudomonas sp. strain amino alkanoate catabolism (AAC)] was identified that has the capacity to use 12-aminododecanoic acid, the constituent building block of homo-nylon-12, as a sole nitrogen source. Growth of Pseudomonas sp. strain AAC could also be supported using a range of additional ω-amino alkanoates. This metabolic function was shown to be most probably dependent upon one or more transaminases (TAs). Fourteen genes encoding putative TAs were identified from the...[Show more]
