Pseudocumene (1,2,4-trimethylbenzene) and 3-ethyltoluene were found to serve as growth substrates for Pseudomonas putida (arvilla) mt-2, in addition to toluene, m-xylene, and p-xylene as previously described. Similar observations were made with several additional P. putida strains also capable of growth with toluene and the xylenes. Additional substrates which supported the growth of these organisms included 3,4-dimethylbenzyl alcohol, 3,4-dimethylbenzoate, and 3-ethylbenzoate. P. putida mt-2… Expand
Purification and characterization of alkylcatechol 2,3-dioxygenase from butylphenol degradation pathway of Pseudomonas putida MT4.
TLDR
Results suggest that BupB has broad substrate specificity for 4-n-alkylcatechols, and shows relative meta-cleavage activities for catechols. Expand
Degradation of 2-methylbenzoic acid by Pseudomonas cepacia MB2
TLDR
Observations suggested a major route of methylbenzoate metabolism to be dioxygenation to a carboxy-hydrodiol which then forms a catechol derivative. Expand
Degradation 1,2-dimethylbenzene by Corynebacterium strain C125
TLDR
It is proposed that dioxygenases are involved in the initial steps of 1,2-dimethylbenzene degradation, and ring opening proceeds via meta-cleavage. Expand
Initial steps in the degradation of 3,4-dimethylbenzoic acid by Pseudomonas putida strain DMB.
TLDR
The detection of the two first metabolites suggests that the initial step in the degradation of3,4-dimethylbenzoic acid is the formation of 3,4,dimethylcyclohexa-3,5-diene-1,2-diol-1-carboxylic acid which underwent an acid-catalyzed dehydration yielding 3, 4-Dimethylsalicylic acid and 3,3-dimethyphenol.

Isolation of a Pseudomonas stutzeri strain that degrades o-xylene
TLDR
The suggested hypothesis is that the first metabolic steps of growth on o-xylene involve the direct oxygenation of the aromatic nucleus, followed by meta pathway reactions. Expand

Identification of cis-diols as intermediates in the oxidation of aromatic acids by a strain of Pseudomonas putida that contains a TOL plasmid
TLDR
The structure of the diol was determined by conventional chemical techniques including identification of the products formed by acid-catalyzed dehydration and characterization of a methyl ester derivative and the cis-relative stereochemistry of the hydroxyl groups was determined. Expand
Bacterial metabolism of side chain fluorinated aromatics: cometabolism of 3-trifluoromethyl(TFM)-benzoate by Pseudomonas putida (arvilla) mt-2 and Rhodococcus rubropertinctus n657

The TOL plasmid-encoded enzymes of the methyl-benzoate pathway in Pseudomonas putida mt-2 cometabolized 3-trifluoromethyl (TFM)-benzoates were identified chemically and by spectroscopic properties. Expand

TLDR
It appears that benzoate and m-and p--toluates are the substrate inducers of the meta pathway enzymes in this organism. Expand
Metabolism of toluene and xylenes by Pseudomonas (putida (arvilla) mt-2: evidence for a new function of the TOL plasmid
TLDR
Pseudomonas putida (arvilla) mt-2 carries genes for the catabolism of toluene, m- xylene, and p-xylene on a transmissible plasmid, TOL, suggesting that a single set of nonspecific enzymes is responsible for the dissimilation of the breakdown products of toLUene and m- and p -xylene. Expand
Gentisic acid and its 3- and 4-methyl-substituted homologoues as intermediates in the bacterial degradation of m-cresol, 3,5-xylenol and 2,5-xylenol.
TLDR
Extracts of cells grown with 2,5-xylenol catalysed the oxidation of all five phenols and accumulated the corresponding gentisic acids in the presence of alphaalpha'-bipyridyl, which formed 3-hydroxy-4-methylbenzoic acid and 3-methylgentisic acid, which were formed from 3, 5-xyenol. Expand
Metabolism of Benzoate and the Methylbenzoates by Pseudomonas putida (arvilla) mt-2: Evidence for the Existence of a TOL Plasmid
TLDR
Preliminary results from mutant strains of Pseudomonas putida mt-2 and from a mutant defective in the regulation of the plasmid-carried pathway suggest that the wild type contains two benzoate oxidase systems, one on thePlasmid which is nonspecific in both its catalysis and its induction and one in the chromosome which is more specific to benzoates as substrate and is specifically induced by benzosate.

A pathway is proposed for the initial reactions utilized by Pseudomonas Pxy to oxidize p- and m-xylene. Expand
The metabolism of cresols by species of Pseudomonas.
TLDR
A comparison of rates of oxidation of various compounds by whole cells indicated that protocatechuate was a reaction intermediate when a non-fluorescent species of Pseudomonas oxidized p-cresol, and that cell extracts appeared to attack only one enantiomer of synthetic 4-hydroxy-2-oxohexanoate.

The meta cleavage of catechol by Azotobacter species. 4-Oxalocrotonate pathway.
TLDR
Catechol was metabolized through 2-hydroxymuconic semialdehyde by cell-free extracts of benzoate-grown Azotobacter Strains and the findings described here are discussed in connection with the two previously reported meta cleavage pathways for the oxidation of catechol in Pseudomonas strains. Expand

TLDR
Two new metabolites, 5-carboxymethyl-2-hydroxymuconic acid and 2-hydroxyhepta-2,4-diene-1,7-dioic acid, were isolated from reaction mixtures and a third, 4-Hydroxyphenylacetic acid, was shown to be cleaved by extracts to give pyruvate and succinic semialdehyde. Expand
Regulation of the degradative pathway enzymes coded for by the TOL plasmid (pWWO) from Pseudomonas putida mt-2
TLDR
A regulatory mutant is described in which m-xylene and m-methylbenzyl alcohol no longer induce any of the pathway enzymes, but m-toluate is still able to induce the enzymes responsible for its own degradation. Expand

TLDR
Growth on phenol of two strains of Pseudomonas putida biotype A, NCIB 10015 and NCIB 9865, elicits the synthesis of an enzyme that hydrolyzes 2-hydroxy-6-oxo-2,4-heptadienoate to 2-oxopent-4-enoate, which has similar Km values, pH optima, and thermal labilities and attack the same range of substrates.
