Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19814528A1] The invention relates to a method for producing 2-(4-hydroxyphenoxy)-propionic acid from 2-phenoxy propionic acid or the salts thereof by means of a micro-organism which is capable of converting 2-phenoxy propionic acid into 2-(4-hydroxyphenoxy)-propionic acid. The invention is characterized in that the micro-organism contains at least one of the genes contained in the sequences SEQ ID no. 1 or SEQ ID no. 4 or their functional equivalents. The invention also relates to isolated DNA sequences with the SEQ ID no. 1 or SEQ ID no. 4 and to a gene product containing these sequences. The invention further relates to a micro-organism containing the gene product and to the use of the sequences and the gene product for producing 2-(4-hydroxyphenoxy)-propionic acid.
