Metabolism of the Lathyrus sativus L. Neurotoxin, β-N-Oxalyl-L-α, β-diaminopropionic Acid, by a Pure Culture of a Soil-borne Microbe


Pure cultures of bacteria capable of utilizing the Lathyrus sativus L. neurotoxin, β-N-oxalyl-L-α, β-diaminopropionic acid (ODAP), as their sole carbon and nitrogen source have been isolated from soil-sludge filtrates. Three independent isolates, designated BYA1, BYT1, and BYK1, were selected by repetitive growth on the neurotoxin and purified based upon… (More)
