  • A strain of Pseudomonas (P. putida HS1) was found to resemble P. putida (arvilla) mt-2 in its ability to degrade toluene, m- and p-xylene, 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene (pseudocumene), and 3-ethyltoluene via oxidation of a methyl substituent and reactions of the meta-fission pathway. The ability to degrade these substrates by P. putida HS1 (PpC1) was shown to be encoded by a TOL (pDK1) plasmid as evidenced by: (i) spontaneous loss of the TOL-related phenotype after growth with benzoate, (ii) transfer… CONTINUE READING
