Abstract
Sphingomonas sp. strain TTNP3 degrades 4(3',5'-dimethyl-3'-heptyl)-phenol and unidentified metabolites that were described previously. The chromatographic analyses of the synthesized reference compound and the metabolites led to their identification as 2(3',5'-dimethyl-3'-heptyl)-1,4-benzenediol. This finding indicates that the nonylphenol metabolism of this bacterium involves unconventional degradation pathways where an NIH shift mechanism occurs.
