Comamonas acidovoruns MCI, which: is capable of degrading the chiral phenoxypropionate herbicides 2-(2.4-dichlorophenoxy)propionate [dichlorprop, (RS)-2.4-DP] and 2-(4-chloro-2-methyl-phen0xy)propionate [mecoprop, (RQ-MCPP] and of degrading the phenoxyacetate herbicides 2.4-dichlorophenoxyacetate (2.4-D) and 4-chloro-2-methylphenoxyacetate (MCPA). was investigated with respect to the enzymatic basis of this broad substrate specificity. The initial steps of the degradation pathway of (RQ-2.4-DP and 2.4-D were …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
