Pseudomonas putida T-57 was isolated from an activated sludge sample after enrichment on mineral salts basal medium with toluene as a sole source of carbon. P. putida T-57 utilizes n-butanol, toluene, styrene, m-xylene, ethylbenzene, n-hexane, and propylbenzene as growth substrates. The strain was able to grow on toluene when liquid toluene was added to mineral salts basal medium at 10–90% (v/v), and was tolerant to organic solvents whose log  P ow (1-octanol/water partition coefficient) was… CONTINUE READING
