Abstract

The 4-hydroxyacetophenone assimilating bacterium Arthrobacter sp. TGJ4 was isolated from a soil sample. The resting cell reaction suggested that the strain cleaved 4-hydroxyacetophenone and its 3-methoxy derivative to the corresponding carboxylic acids and formaldehyde. Some properties of the enzyme catalyzing the cleavage reaction were examined.
