Two strains of Pseudomonas putida isolated by enrichment cultures with orcinol as the sole source of carbon were both found to grow with resorcinol. Data are presented which show that one strain (ORC) catabolizes resorcinol by a metabolic pathway, genetically and mechanistically distinct from the orcinol pathway, via hydroxyquinol and ortho oxygenative cleavage to give maleylacetate, but that the other strain (O1) yields mutants that utilize resorcinol. One mutant strain, designated O1OC, was… CONTINUE READING
