Abstract1,6-Hexanediol is dissimilated by restingPseudomonas aeruginosa cells to give 6-hydroxyhexanoate, which is subject to β- as well as to ω-oxidation.β-Oxidation leads to 4-hydroxybutyrate, which is further metabolized through succinate. ω-Oxidation appears to be inhibited in a reversible manner by the diol. This inhibition leads to the accumulation of 6-hydroxyhexanoate in yields of 50, 75% of the 1,6-hexanediol converted.When the diol is exhausted, the ω-oxidation of 6-hydroxyhexanoate… Expand

Degradation ofn-alkane-1-sulfonates byPseudomonas
We have isolated two strains ofPseudomonas, AJ 1 and AJ 2, growing on the C4–C7 and the C8–C12n-alkane-1-sulfonates, respectively, as the only source of their carbon and energy.The alkane sulfonatesExpand
Occurrence of inducible and NAD(P)-independent primary alcohol dehydrogenases in an alkane-oxidizingPseudomonas
TLDR
Pseudomonas aeruginosa constitutively contains a soluble NADP-linked dehydrogenase active towards primary alcohols and at least two NAD(P)-independent primary alcohol dehydrogenases can be induced by growing this strain onPrimary alcohols,α,ω-diols orn-alkanes. Expand
Induction of alkane-oxidizing andα-olefin-epoxidizing enzymes by a non-hydrocarbon in aPseudomonas
A strain ofPseudomonas aeruginosa could be induced to oxidizen-paraffins and to epoxidizeα-olefins by treating peptone-grown cells with 1,6-hexanediol or by growing them on this substrate. Of someExpand
Hydrophobic enzymes in hydrocarbon degradation
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (strain 473) constitutively contains an NADP-linked alcohol dehydrogenase. This enzyme is believed to function only in assimilative processes, because growth on primaryExpand
Anreicherung der Aldehydzwischenstufe aus der wachsenden Kultur von Pseudomonas aeruginosa beim Abbau von Tetradecanol
TLDR
Pseudomonas aeruginosa tetradecanal was accumulated as semicarbazon and was identified as 2,4-Dinitrophenylhydrazon, confirming the possibility of production of an intermediate aldehyde out of the growing culture. Expand

Extraction and properties of alcohol dehydrogenase from Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
TLDR
The aldehyde dehydrogenase was specific for aliphatic aldehydes and required the presence of Fe2+ or Ca2+, and a flavin such as FAD or riboflavin, confirming that the aldealdehyde is an intermediate in the metabolic degradation of hydrocarbons by bacteria. Expand

TLDR
