Metabolism of l-Malate and d-Malate by a Species of Pseudomonas.


Extracts of a fluorescent species of Pseudomonas grown with m-cresol, degrade gentisic acid without isomerization of the ring-fission compound, maleylpyruvate, to give eventually d-malate and pyruvate. d-Malate is also a growth substrate. l-Malate but not d-malate is oxidized by a particulate enzyme not requiring nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) or… (More)
