Pseudomonas putida mt-2, P. cepacia G4, P. mendocina KR1, and P. putida F1 degrade toluene through different pathways. In this study, we compared the competition behaviors of these strains in chemostat culture at a low growth rate (D = 0.05 h-1), with toluene as the sole source of carbon and energy. Either toluene or oxygen was growth limiting. Under toluene-limiting conditions, P. mendocina KR1, in which initial attack is by monooxygenation of the aromatic nucleus at the para position… CONTINUE READING
