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… Expand
Characterization of a novel TOL-like plasmid from Pseudomonas putida involved in 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene degradation
A strain of Pseudomonas putida (TMB) was found to resemble P. putida mt-2 (PaW1) in its ability to degrade 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene, toluene, m-xylene, and p-xylene via oxidation of a methylExpand
TOM, a new aromatic degradative plasmid from Burkholderia (Pseudomonas) cepacia G4
TLDR
Results indicate that the genes which encode Tom and catechol 2,3-dioxygenase are located on TOM, an approximately 108-kb degradative plasmid of B. cepacia G4. Expand
Characterization of a TOL-like plasmid from Alcaligenes eutrophus that controls expression of a chromosomally encoded p-cresol pathway
TLDR
It is concluded that the gene(s) responsible for the effect of p-cresol degradation resides within or near the m- and p-toluate degradative region on pRA1000. Expand
Stability of a Catabolic Plasmid in Continuous Culture
TLDR
It is suggested that plasmid loss is related to a failure in the control of partitioning at cell division but that this is not absolute and allows the maintenance of a residual low level of plasid-containing bacteria in the population. Expand
The presence of two complete homologous meta pathway operons on TOL plasmid pWW53.
TLDR
The plasmids in the Mxy- Mtol+ mutants are formed by a large deletion between homologous regions of the two duplicate meta pathway operons, which causes the loss of the intervening xylCAB operon and the formation of a hybrid xylDLEGF(I, J, K)H operon. Expand
Molecular characterization of the pA3J1 plasmid from the psychrotolerant Antarctic bacterium Pseudomonas sp. ANT_J3.
TLDR
The structural and comparative analyses revealed that the arrangement of genetic modules in the pA3J1 plasmid is unique and may be a representative of a novel group (or subgroup) within this family. Expand
Physical and functional mapping of two cointegrate plasmids derived from RP4 and TOL plasmid pDK1.
TLDR
Cointegrate plasmids were formed in vivo between the broad-host-range R-plasmid RP4 and two catabolic plasmid derived from Pseudomonas putida HS1, encoding the complete inducible toluene/xylene (TOL) catabolic pathway and a deletion derivative of pDK1 selected after growth of HS1 on benzoate. Expand
Identification of cis-diols as intermediates in the oxidation of aromatic acids by a strain of Pseudomonas putida that contains a TOL plasmid
TLDR
The structure of the diol was determined by conventional chemical techniques including identification of the products formed by acid-catalyzed dehydration and characterization of a methyl ester derivative and the cis-relative stereochemistry of the hydroxyl groups was determined. Expand
Complete Nucleotide Sequence of TOL Plasmid pDK1 Provides Evidence for Evolutionary History of IncP-7 Catabolic Plasmids
TLDR
Results indicate that IncP-7 plasmids are essentially narrow-host-range and self-transmissible plasmid that encode MOB(H) group-related transfer functions and that the host range of IncP -7-specified conjugative transfer was, unlike the situation in other well-known plasmIDS, narrower than that of its replication. Expand
TOL plasmid pWW15 contains two nonhomologous, independently regulated catechol 2,3-oxygenase genes
TLDR
Findings cast doubt on the earlier hypothesis that the deletions in B3 and B5 mutants remove a regulatory gene by which m-toluate induces the enzymes necessary for its own catabolism. Expand

Characterization of a Spontaneously Occurring Mutant of the TOL20 Plasmid in Pseudomonas putida MT20: Possible Regulatory Implications
TLDR
Analysis of MT20-B3 has led to a model for the regulation of the plasmid-coded enzymes in MT20, in which it is proposed that the early enzymes for degradation of m-toluate and benzoate are positively controlled by two regulator molecules. Expand
Isolation of a mutant TOL plasmid with increased activity and transmissibility from Pseudomonas putida (arvilla) mt-2
TLDR
Strains with greater ability to dissimilate m-toluate were obtained from the wild-type Pseudomonas putida (arvilla) mt-2 that harbors the TOL plasmid, and transfer experiments revealed that the T OL-H transfer was 1,000 times greater than that of the wild type. Expand
Metabolism of Benzoate and the Methylbenzoates by Pseudomonas putida (arvilla) mt-2: Evidence for the Existence of a TOL Plasmid
TLDR
Preliminary results from mutant strains of Pseudomonas putida mt-2 and from a mutant defective in the regulation of the plasmid-carried pathway suggest that the wild type contains two benzoate oxidase systems, one on thePlasmid which is nonspecific in both its catalysis and its induction and one in the chromosome which is more specific to benzoates as substrate and is specifically induced by benzosate.

Ubiquity of plasmids in coding for toluene and xylene metabolism in soil bacteria: evidence for the existence of new TOL plasmids
TLDR
Three of the isolates, MT 14, MT 15, and MT 20, differed significantly from the others in that the wild-type strains dissimilated the p-methyl-substituted substrates poorly, and also, during growth on benzoate, they gave rise to derivatives with a phenotype intermediate between the cured and wild- type strains, the biochemical and genetic nature of which has not been elucidated.

XYL, a nonconjugative xylene-degradative plasmid in Pseudomonas Pxy
TLDR
The xylene pathway is inducible in wild-type Pxy as well as in Pxy and PpG1 exconjugants, suggesting the cotransfer of regulatory genes along with the plasmid. Expand
Metabolism of toluene and xylenes by Pseudomonas (putida (arvilla) mt-2: evidence for a new function of the TOL plasmid
TLDR
Pseudomonas putida (arvilla) mt-2 carries genes for the catabolism of toluene, m- xylene, and p-xylene on a transmissible plasmid, TOL, suggesting that a single set of nonspecific enzymes is responsible for the dissimilation of the breakdown products of toLUene and m- and p -xylene. Expand
