Abstract

Primers specific for the genes tfdD, tfdE and tfdF, derived from conserved amino acid sequence motifs of the corresponding homologous enzymes, and primers specific for the genes tfdA and tfdB as well as tfdC taken from the literature were applied in PCR reactions using the genomic DNA of Delftia acidovorans P4a as the template. PCR products were obtained with all primer pairs that were similar in size to those found with the genomic DNA of strains harbouring plasmid pJP4 as the carrier of tfd genes. The nucleotide sequences and the corresponding amino acid sequences of the PCR products obtained with Strain P4a were compared with the sequence databases. According to BLAST analyses, the partial sequences of tfdA and tfdB exhibited a 94–99% degree of identity with the homologous sequences of the 2,4-D-degrading strains Achromobacter xylosoxidans subsp. denitrificans EST4002 (pEST4011), Burkholderia sp. RASC, Variovorax paradoxus TV1 (pTV1) and Burkholderia cepacia 2a (pIJB1), whereas the partial sequences of the tfdC, tfdD, tfdE and tfdF genes revealed a 96–100% degree of identity with the homologous sequences of the chlorobenzene-utilizing strains Ralstonia eutropha NH9 (pENH91), Pseudomonas chlororaphis RW71 and Pseudomonas sp. P51 (pP51).
