|Title:||Formation of ortho-benzoquinone from sodium benzoate by Pseudomonas mendocina P2d|
|Keywords:||Catechol;2-HMS;Ortho-benzoquinone;Pseudomonas mendocina;Sodium benzoate|
|Abstract:||Pseudomonas mendocina P2d grew in sodium benzoate at as high as 1% concentration and formed a quinonoid compound, identified as ortho-benzoquinone, that rendered the medium orange to wine-red in colour. The quinone was not metabilised further by the organism. Sodium benzoate was converted to catechol, which was a central metabolite forming ortho-benzoquinone and 2- hydroxymuconic semialdehyde (2-HMS) via. metaring cleavage pathway.|
