Can Aniline keep it's NH2 during biodegradation?

Normally it was think that when aniline was biodegraded by microbial,
it will lose its NH2 at first, then the ring broken to form=
 CH3CH2OHCH2COCOOH.
But in my research, I found CH3CH2OHCH2CHNH2COOH as intermediate. It seems
aniline will not lost its NH2 under biofilm electrode degradation. I'm not
sure it's a new discovery or just a mistake. Experiment repeated twice.


True or false, who can  tell me?


Object: Aniline
Method: biofilm electrode
GC/MS:  Varian 2000
Sample was extracted by organic dissolvent (chloroform:Petroleum ether
  =3D1:1)
