Examples of references describing or modifying primers to amplify genes involved in petroleum degradation.


Aerobic degradation

Catechol 2,3-dioxygenase genesDegradation of aromatic compounds[33, 34]
ALKA and/or ALKB genesEncode enzymes related to alkane degradation[3539]

Anaerobic degradation

bamA geneEncodes 6-OCH-hydrolases (last step of the route of dearomatization of benzoyl-CoA)[4042]
bssA geneencodes the α subunit of benzylsuccinate synthase (BSS), which starts the anaerobic degradation of toluene and xylene[4345]
