Identification of a plasmid-borne parathion hydrolase gene from Flavobacterium sp. by southern hybridization with opd from Pseudomonas diminuta
It appears that the two discrete bacterial plasmids from parathion-hydrolyzing soil bacteria possess a common but limited region of sequence homology within potentially nonhomologous plasmid structures. Expand
Physical comparison of parathion hydrolase plasmids from Pseudomonas diminuta and Flavobacterium sp.
DNA hybridization experiments are conducted using each of nine PstI restriction fragments from pCMS1 as probes against Flavobacterium plasmid DNA to determine restriction maps of two plasmids encoding parathion hydrolase. Expand
Microbial degradation of s-triazine herbicides.
The purpose of this review is to discuss the parameters involved in the microbial degradation of s-triazine herbicides. Expand
Mode of action of the herbicide, 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole(amitrole): inhibition of an enzyme of histidine biosynthesis.
The herbicide 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole (amitrole) is shown to inhibit imidazoleglycerol phosphate dehydratase, an enzyme of histidine biosynthesis, in Salmonella typhimurium and appears to inhibit purine synthesis. Expand
Behavior of Pesticides in Soils
Publisher Summary The behavior of pesticides in soils has been the subject of research long before pollution became a byword. In recognition that soil is the ultimate sink for most widely usedExpand
