Title: 3-(2-hydroxyphenyl)catechol as substrate for proximal meta ring cleavage in dibenzofuran degradation by Brevibacterium sp. strain DPO 1361
Issue Date: 1991 Zeitschriftenartikel Journal of bacteriology 173 (1991), S. 1932-1937. URL
Abstract: Brevibacterium sp. strain DPO 1361 oxygenates dibenzofuran in the unusual angular position. The 3-(2-hydroxyphenyl)catechol thus generated is subject to meta ring cleavage in the proximal position, yielding 2-hydroxy-6-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-6-oxo-2,4-hexadienoic acid, which is hydrolyzed to 2-oxo-4-pentenoate and salicylate by 2-hydroxy-6-oxo-6-phenyl-2,4-hexadienoic acid hydrolase. The proximal mode of ring cleavage is definitely established by isolation and unequivocal structural characterization of a cyclization product of 2-hydroxy-6-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-6-oxo-2,4-hexadienoic acid, i.e., 3-(chroman-4-on-2-yl)pyruvate.
