The Homogentisate Pathway: a Central Catabolic Pathway Involved in the Degradation of l-Phenylalanine, l-Tyrosine, and 3-Hydroxyphenylacetate in Pseudomonas putida
A broad-host-range mobilizable catabolic cassette harboring the hmgABC, hpd, and tyrB genes is engineered that allows heterologous bacteria to use Tyr as a unique carbon and energy source.
Catabolism of Phenylacetic Acid in Escherichia coli
The paa cluster of Escherichia coli W involved in the aerobic catabolism of phenylacetic acid (PA) has been cloned and sequenced and represents a novel hybrid pathway that could be a widespread way of PACatabolism in bacteria.

A new class of glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) is reported, which shows strong sequence similarity to proteins encoded by unidentified open reading frames present in the genomes of species belonging to the genera Mycobacterium,Rickettsia, Pseudomonas, Vibrio,Shewanella, and Caulobacter, suggesting that it has a broad distribution.

This pathway constitutes the common part (core) of a complex functional unit (catabolon) integrated by several routes that catalyze the transformation of structurally related molecules into a common intermediate (phenylacetyl-CoA).
Purification and biochemical characterization of phenylacetyl-CoA ligase from Pseudomonas putida. A specific enzyme for the catabolism of phenylacetic acid.

The phenylacetyl‐CoA catabolon: a complex catabolic unit with broad biotechnological applications
The phenylacetyl‐CoA catabolon encompasses all the routes involved in the transformation of styrene, 2‐phenylethylamine, trans‐styrylacetic acid,phenylacetaldehyde, phenylacetic Acid, phenYLacetyl amides, phenolacetyl esters and n‐phenylalkanoic acids, and its broad biotechnological applications are discussed.
A Major Secreted Elastase Is Essential for Pathogenicity of Aeromonas hydrophila
These first reports of a defined mutation in an extracellular protease of A. hydrophila demonstrate an important role in pathogenesis and shows high sequence similarity to other metalloproteases.
Rapid identification of Yersinia ruckeri by PCR amplification of yruI–yruR quorum sensing
Yersinia ruckeri possesses a quorum-sensing system detected by cross-streaking against the white mutant Chromobacterium voilaceum CV0blu. Quorum sensing, which occurs in a number of Gram-negative…
Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase-encoding gene as a useful taxonomic tool for Staphylococcus spp.
PCR amplification of the gap gene has the potential for rapid identification of at least 12 species belonging to the genus Staphylococcus, as it is highly specific.
