The culture supernatant ofPseudomonas tralucida (Ptm+ strain) produces an agent which can emulsify the insecticide hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH), which was secreted by resting cells. Emulsifying agent is most active with α-HCH, and has some activity towards other chlorinated and phosphatic insecticides. The emulsifier is a heat stable macromolecule and associated with growth of the organism on α-HCH.
