Isolation and characterization of a dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase mutant of Pseudomonas chlororaphis

Abstract

A dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase mutant of Pseudomonas chlororaphis ATCC 17414 was isolated and characterized in this study. Initially, reductive catabolism of uracil was confirmed to be active in ATCC 17414 cells. Following chemical mutagenesis and d-cycloserine counterselection, a mutant strain unable to utilize uracil as a nitrogen source was identified… (More)
