Degradation of several xenobiotics by Halomicrobium mukohataei
KEGG pathways that I have found viable genes for in the H. mukohataei genome:
- Benzoate degradation via hydroxylation
- Caprolactam degradation
- Styrene degradation
Possibly others, but either the gaps in other pathways are due to H. mukohataei possessing an alternate gene rather than one that is already known to exist in other genomes, or that a gene has not been identified in any genomes at all and requires wet-lab experiments to determine the sequence of the gene. These unknown genes must exist in several organisms, because the protein that they produce has been identified.
