Carbazole-degradative IncP-7 plasmid pCAR1.2 is structurally unstable in Pseudomonas fluorescens Pf0-1, which accumulates catechol, the intermediate of the carbazole degradation pathway.

We determined the effect of the host on the function and structure of the nearly identical IncP-7 carbazole-degradative plasmids pCAR1.1 and pCAR1.2. We constructed Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1(pCAR1.2) and P. fluorescens Pf0-1Km(pCAR1.2) and compared their growth on carbazole- and succinate-containing media with that of P. putida KT2440(pCAR1.1). We also… CONTINUE READING
