Methylobacterium dichloromethanicum DM4 is able to grow with dichloromethane as the sole carbon and energy source by using a dichloromethane dehalogenase/glutathione S-transferase (GST) for the conversion of dichloromethane to formaldehyde. Mammalian homologs of this bacterial enzyme are also known to catalyze this reaction. However, the dehalogenation of dichloromethane by GST T1-1 from rat was highly mutagenic and toxic to methylotrophic bacteria. Plasmid-driven expression of rat GST T1-1 in...[Show more]
