Aims:  To establish if tetradecyltrimethylammonium (TDTMA) might be degraded by pure culture of Pseudomonas strains, and how the presence of a Lewis’ acid in the medium influences its biodegradability. 
Physiological role of phosphatidylcholine in the Pseudomonas putida A ATCC 12633 response to tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide and aluminium
Aims:  To evaluate the effect of tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide (TTAB) and aluminium stresses on the phospholipid (PL) composition of Pseudomonas putida A ATCC 12633.
Immobilization of Pseudomonas putida A (ATCC 12633) cells: A promising tool for effective degradation of quaternary ammonium compounds in industrial effluents
TLDR
It is concluded that immobilized QACs-degrading bacteria represent a promising tool for bioremediation ofQACs in industrial wastewater systems. Expand
The phosphatidylcholine synthase of Pseudomonas putida A ATCC 12633 is responsible for the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, which acts as a temporary reservoir for Al3+.
TLDR
Although under non-stressing growth conditions the pcs-deficient mutant showed growth like that of the wild-type strain, the mutant was much more sensitive when challenged with Al(3+), which strongly supports the supposition that PC is involved in the response of P. putida to Al( 3+) and acts as a temporary reservoir of available ions through the formation of Al(2+) : PC complexes. Expand
Biodegradation of benzalkonium chlorides singly and in mixtures by a Pseudomonas sp. isolated from returned activated sludge.
TLDR
The antagonistic effect of interactions on biodegradation of two widely used QACs is demonstrated suggesting further investigation on the degradation of mixture ofQACs in wastewater effluents and biosolids. Expand
Degradation of cationic surfactants using Pseudomonas putida A ATCC 12633 immobilized in calcium alginate beads
TLDR
The results show that the optimal embedding conditions of calciumAlginate beads are 4 % w/v of sodium alginate content and 2 × 108 cfu ml−1 of P. putida A ATCC 12633 cells that had been previously grown in rich medium. Expand
Pseudomonas putida A ATCC 12633 oxidizes trimethylamine aerobically via two different pathways
TLDR
Results show that this bacterial strain uses two enzymes to initiate the oxidation of trimethylamine in aerobic conditions, which may be due to the low catalytic efficiency of trimthylamine monooxygenase and trimethyamine dehydrogenase. Expand
A Rieske-Type Oxygenase of Pseudomonas sp. BIOMIG1 Converts Benzalkonium Chlorides to Benzyldimethyl Amine.
TLDR
It is shown that heterologous expression of an oxygenase gene (oxyBAC) present in this gene array in E. coli resulted in formation of BDMA from BACs at a rate of 14 μM h-1, and represents a new member of RO associated with BAC degradation. Expand
Immobilization of a microbial consortium on Ca-alginate enhances degradation of cationic surfactants in flasks and bioreactor
Abstract Free cells and Ca-alginate encapsulated cells of Aeromonas hydrophila MFB03 removed in shake flasks up to 65% of tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide (TTAB) 30 mg l−1. While planktonic cellsExpand
Identification, Cloning and Biochemical Characterization of Pseudomonas putida A (ATCC 12633) Monooxygenase Enzyme necessary for the Metabolism of Tetradecyltrimethylammonium Bromide
TLDR
The biochemical properties and the analysis of the respective protein sequence revealed that TTABMO represents a typical flavoprotein monooxygenase, which is member of a flavop protein family that is distinct from Baeyer–Villiger monooxyGENases. Expand
Aerobic biotransformation of n-tetradecylbenzyldimethylammonium chloride by an enriched Pseudomonas spp. community.
TLDR
The aerobic biotransformation of C(14)BDMA-Cl to BDMA results in substantial toxicity reduction and is thought to be transformed to dimethylamine and benzoic acid via debenzylation. Expand

Metabolism of hexadecyltrimethylammonium chloride in Pseudomonas strain B1
TLDR
Assays of aldehyde dehydrogenase, hexadecanoyl-coenzyme A dehydrogen enzyme, and isocitrate lyase in cell extracts revealed the potential of Pseudomonas strain B1 to metabolize the alkyl chain via beta-oxidation. Expand
Aluminum detoxification in Pseudomonas fluorescens is mediated by oxalate and phosphatidylethanolamine.
TLDR
It appears that P. fluorescens detoxifies Al via its extrusion in association with oxalate and PE in a process that apparently does not necessitate the direct utilization of energy. Expand

Trimethylamine metabolism in obligate and facultative methylotrophs.

It is concluded that two different pathways for the oxidation of trimethylamine occur amongst the isolates, and evidence is presented that this enzyme is important for the growth of bacterium 4B6 on trimethyamine. Expand

TLDR
The 94% drop in DTDMAC concentrations in digested sludges is due to the replacement of this substance and is a clear result of the producers' voluntary ban on its use in Europe. Expand
