Figure 6. Proposed pathway for catabolism of 1C4NB by bacterial strain XII. The ring cleavage product 2-amino-5-chloromuconic semialdehyde can be subject to dehydrogenation (probably producing 2-amino-5-chloromuconic acid) or intramolecular condensation to form the dead-end product 5-chloromuconic acid as previously reported for 2-aminophenol transformation by P. pseudoalcaligenes JS45 (20) or by Pseudomonas sp. strain AP-3 (48)
