Pseudomonas putida CR30RNS (pADPTel) is an antibiotic-resistant strain with a recombinant plasmid that confers resistance to tellurite and the ability to catabolize atrazine. The survival of this strain as well as its ability to transfer genes for atrazine degradation and tellurite resistance to indigenous soil bacteria were tested in both fallow soil and canola (Brassica napus) rhizosphere by the use of parallel field and laboratory releases. Culturable CR30RNS (pADPTel) were enumerated in… CONTINUE READING
