Abstract

Halogenated compounds that are polluting the environment is becoming a huge concern that demands an efficient solution. The rising priority in the use of microorganisms that have the potential to be the most environmental-friendly way to degrade and dispose of halogenated compounds is crucial in solving this problem. Rhizobium sp. RC1 is a Gram-negative bacterium that was isolated from soil using 2,2-dichloropropionic acid (Dalapon) and uses it as one of its primary sources of carbon. It is known that Rhizobium sp. RC1 is able to biodegrade halogenated compounds but the transport process of halogenated compounds into the cell is mostly unknown. There is a putative haloacid transport gene that is present in Rhizobium sp. RC1, dehrP, and the properties of the protein from the gene, DehrP, is ambiguous. It was concluded from this study that DehrP is a protein that belongs in the Major Facilitator Superfamily (MFS) and Metabolite:H symporter (MHS) classification of proteins by analysing the sequence and identifying the motifs that classify DehrP as a part of this classification of proteins. It was also found that the domains between DehrP and MFS/MHS proteins are conserved which provides a solid relation between them.
