Purification and characterization of a salicylate hydroxylase involved in 1-hydroxy-2-naphthoic acid hydroxylation from the naphthalene and phenanthrene-degrading bacterial strain Pseudomonas putida
Abstract1-Hydroxy-2-naphthoate is formed as an intermediate in the bacterial degradation of phenanthrene. A monooxygenase which catalyzed the oxidation of 1-hydroxy-2-naphthoatetoExpand

Effects of the inoculant strain Pseudomonas putida KT2442 (pNF142) and of naphthalene contamination on the soil bacterial community.
The naphthalene-degrading activity of a Pseudomonas sp. strain isolated from a creosote-contaminated soil was shown to be encoded by the IncP9 plasmid pNF142 by transfer to Pseudomonas putida KT2442.Expand

The P-7 Incompatibility Group Plasmids Responsible for Biodegradation of Naphthalene and Salicylate in Fluorescent Pseudomonads
Analysis of seven plasmids (77 to 135 kb in size) of the P-7 incompatibility group that are responsible for the biodegradation of naphthalene and salicylate has shown that the main natural host ofExpand

The organization of naphthalene degradation genes in Pseudomonas putida strain AK5.
The Pseudomonas putida АК5 that was isolated from the slime pit of a Nizhnekamsk oil chemical factory can metabolize naphthalene via salicylate and gentisate. Catabolic genes are localized onExpand
