Microbial conversion of 5-sulfoisophthalic acid into 5-hydroxyisophthalic acid by Ochrobactrum anthropi S9.


PMID 19941033

Abstract

5-Hydroxyisophthalic acid-producing microorganisms were isolated from enrichment cultures using 5-sulfoisophthalic acid as a sulfur source. One bacterium, Ochrobactrum anthropi S9, had the highest 5-sulfoisophthalic acid-degrading activity, and stoichiometrically formed 5-hydroxyisophthalic acid, a raw material for polymer synthesis. Under optimum culture conditions, 1.3 mM 5-hydroxyisophthalic acid accumulated in the medium by 60 h. The addition of Na(2)SO(4), L: -methionine or L: -cysteine at 2 mM inhibited the conversion of 5-sulfoisophthalic acid. O. anthropi S9 cells converted 5-sulfoisophthalic acid, benzenesulfonic acid, 3-sulfobenzoic acid, 4-aminobenzenesulfonic acid, naphthalene-1-sulfonic acid and naphthalene-2-sulfonic acid into the corresponding hydroxylated compounds.
