Abstract

catabolizes both 4-hydroxyphenylacetic acid and 3-hydroxyphenylacetic acid via -cleavage of 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid, ultimately yielding pyruvate and succinate. The organism can synthesize two hydroxylases catalysing 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid formation, which differ in substrte specificity, cofactor requirement, kinetics and regulation. Five enzymes sequentially involved in the catabolism of 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid are encoded on a 7 kbp fragment of the chromosome that has been isolated in a recombinant plasmid.
