n-Alkane oxidation by aPseudomonas
Summary1.APseudomonas oxidizingn-alkanes adaptively was used in experiments on hexane and heptane degradation.2.The R.Q. of heptane respiration by resting heptane-adapted cells was found to be 0.62.Expand
Bacterial degradation of cyclohexane participation of a co-oxidation reaction
AbstractComplete biodegradation of cyclohexane was demonstrated to occur in a system containing two strains of Pseudomonad bacteria, viz an n-alkane oxidizer and a microorganism utilizingExpand
Occurrence of inducible and NAD(P)-independent primary alcohol dehydrogenases in an alkane-oxidizingPseudomonas
Pseudomonas aeruginosa constitutively contains a soluble NADP-linked dehydrogenase active towards primary alcohols and at least two NAD(P)-independent primary alcohol dehydrogenases can be induced by growing this strain onPrimary alcohols,α,ω-diols orn-alkanes. Expand
Iso-alkane oxidation by aPseudomonas Part I.—Metabolism of 2-methylhexane
SummaryPseudomonas cells adapted to 2-methylhexane oxidize 5-methylhexanoic andiso-valeric acids rapidly. The oxidation rates of 2-methylhexanoic and propionic acids are appreciably lower. It can beExpand
The oxidation of α-olefins by aPseudomonas reactions involving the double bond
The preponderant pathway of octene-1 degradation by octane- and octene-1-grownPseudomonas aeruginosa cells (strain 473) starts with oxidation of the methyl group.In addition, with both types of cellsExpand
n-alkane oxidation by apseudomonas formation and β-oxidation of intermediate fatty acids
SummaryFrom a culture broth ofPseudomonas aeruginosa (KSLA strain 473) grown on heptane as the sole source of carbon, fatty acids could be isolated after a period of decreased oxygen supply. TheExpand
Substrate specificity of the paraffin hydroxylase ofPseudomonas aeruginosa
The paraffin hydroxylating enzyme system isolated fromPseudomonas aeruginosa (strain 473) grown onn-heptane has been studied with respect to its substrate specificity. It has been found thatExpand

Abstract1,6-Hexanediol is dissimilated by restingPseudomonas aeruginosa cells to give 6-hydroxyhexanoate, which is subject to β- as well as to ω-oxidation.β-Oxidation leads to 4-hydroxybutyrate,Expand
Pathways of hydrocarbon dissimilation by aPseudomonas as revealed by chloramphenicol
Attack on the saturated end of the molecule seems well in line with the assumption that alkane oxidation by these bacteria is effected by oxygen transferring enzymes operating on a methyl group, as opposed to the action of a dehydrogenase and formation of an α-olefin as the intermediate. Expand
