Phenol degradation in Saccharolobus solfataricus P2

Present in many industrial effluents and as intermediate of lignin degradation, phenol is a widespread pollutant causing serious environmental problems, due to its toxicity to animals and humans. Removal of phenol from the environment by bacteria has been studied extensively over the past decades, but only little is known about phenol biodegradation in hostile environments. We combined metabolomics and transcriptomics together with metabolic modelling to elucidate the organism’s response to growth with phenol as sole carbon source.
