Metabolism of dibutylphthalate and phthalate by Micrococcus sp. strain 12B.
Micrococcus sp. strain 12B was isolated by enriching for growth with dibutylphthalate as the sole carbon and energy source. A pathway for the metabolism of dibutylphthalate and phthalate byExpand

Metabolism of resorcinylic compounds by bacteria: alternative pathways for resorcinol catabolism in Pseudomonas putida.
Two strains of Pseudomonas putida isolated by enrichment cultures with orcinol as the sole source of carbon were both found to grow with resorcinol. Data are presented which show that one strainExpand

Occurrence of Poly-β-Hydroxybutyrate in the Azotobacteriaceae
Poly-β-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) from various representative strains of the genera Azotobacter, Beijerinckia, and Derxia was isolated and characterized. During growth in shake culture, with glucose as aExpand

p-cymene pathway in Pseudomonas putida: initial reactions.
Initial reactions of the p-cymene pathway induced in Pseudomonas putida PL have been reinvestigated. Oxidation of the methyl group attached to the nucleus occurs in three steps to give p-cumic acid.Expand

Phthalate metabolism in Pseudomonas fluorescens PHK: purification and properties of 4,5-dihydroxyphthalate decarboxylase.
Pseudomonas fluorescens PHK uses 4,5-dihydroxyphthalate as the sole carbon source for o-phthalate catabolism. This intermediate is the substrate for a decarboxylase of the pathway yieldingExpand
