Abstract

The chromosomal benK gene was identified within a supraoperonic gene cluster involved in benzoate degradation by Acinetobacter sp. strain ADP1, and benK was expressed in response to a benzoate metabolite, cis,cis-muconate. The disruption of benK reduced benzoate uptake and impaired the use of benzoate or benzaldehyde as the carbon source. BenK was homologous to several aromatic compound transporters.
