Isolation, identification, and characterization of a lipoate-degrading pseudomonad and of a lipoate catabolite.


A strain of bacteria that can degrade lipoic acid was isolated from soil. The bacterium, adapted to use 0.4% dl-lipoate as the sole organic substrate to supply carbon, sulfur, and energy, was identified morphologically and physiologically as a strain of Pseudomonas putida. Degradation of 1,6-(14)C-lipoic acid, synthesized from 1,6-(14)C-adipic acid, was… (More)
