Pseudomonas aeruginosa cells pre-grown on a particular hydrocarbon will oxidize other hydrocarbons as well. Degradation of these hydrocarbons proceeds to a point — depending on their structure — where new enzymes are needed for further degradation. Lack of these enzymes causes accumulation of products. However, secondary adaptation processes tend to decrease yields of intermediates, in particular when adaptation rates are high.By inhibiting these secondary adaptation processes with… Expand

Hydrophobic enzymes in hydrocarbon degradation
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (strain 473) constitutively contains an NADP-linked alcohol dehydrogenase. This enzyme is believed to function only in assimilative processes, because growth on primaryExpand
The oxidation of α-olefins by aPseudomonas reactions involving the double bond
The preponderant pathway of octene-1 degradation by octane- and octene-1-grownPseudomonas aeruginosa cells (strain 473) starts with oxidation of the methyl group.In addition, with both types of cellsExpand
Der Abbau von Undecan durch ein marines Bakterium
Summary1.From the North Sea an obligate halophilic, hydrocarbon-oxidizing Pseudomonas Strain Helgoland (Strain H) was isolated.2.Strain H is growing badly on carbohydrates, but well on n-alkanes fromExpand
Degradation ofn-alkane-1-sulfonates byPseudomonas
We have isolated two strains ofPseudomonas, AJ 1 and AJ 2, growing on the C4–C7 and the C8–C12n-alkane-1-sulfonates, respectively, as the only source of their carbon and energy.The alkane sulfonatesExpand
Microbial Degradation of Alkanes
Petroleum hydrocarbons are introduced into the environment through excessive use of fuels and accidental spills during transportation and storage. Alkanes, a major fraction of crude oil, areExpand

n-alkane oxidation by apseudomonas formation and β-oxidation of intermediate fatty acids
SummaryFrom a culture broth ofPseudomonas aeruginosa (KSLA strain 473) grown on heptane as the sole source of carbon, fatty acids could be isolated after a period of decreased oxygen supply. TheExpand
n-Alkane oxidation by aPseudomonas
Summary1.APseudomonas oxidizingn-alkanes adaptively was used in experiments on hexane and heptane degradation.2.The R.Q. of heptane respiration by resting heptane-adapted cells was found to be 0.62.Expand
Iso-alkane oxidation by aPseudomonas Part I.—Metabolism of 2-methylhexane
SummaryPseudomonas cells adapted to 2-methylhexane oxidize 5-methylhexanoic andiso-valeric acids rapidly. The oxidation rates of 2-methylhexanoic and propionic acids are appreciably lower. It can beExpand
Déshydrogénation d'hydrocarbures paraffiniques par les suspensions non-proliférantes et les extraits de Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Under anaerobic conditions and in the presence of paraffinic hydrocarbons, resting-cells of Pseudomonas aeruginosa grown on these substrates reduce pyocyanin, a natural pigment produced by the organism concerned, and their respiratory activity is consistently increased by the addition of either diphosphopyridine nucleotide or pyOCyanin.

Chemical evidence has been reported which strongly suggests that methanol, formaldehyde, and formic acid are produced from methane by Methanomonas methanooxidans and Pseudomonas methanica. Expand
Oxidation of alkyl-substituted cyclic hydrocarbons by a Nocardia during growth on n-alkanes.
The specificity of microbial oxidations is demonstrated by the conversion of p-isopropyltoluene (p-cymene) to p- isopropylbenzoic acid in n-alkane, growth-supported nocardia cultures. Expand
Anaerobic Formation of n-Hept-l-ene from n-Heptane by Resting Cells of Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Two of us (E. A. and J. C. S.) have previously shown1,2 that Pseudomonas aeruginosa metabolizes anaerobically n-heptane through an adaptative dehydrogenase coupled with pyocyanin and/orExpand
Esters from Bacterial Oxidation of Olefins
Identification of esters isolated from culture fluids of bacteria growing upon terminal olefins indicates that bacteria oxidize olefins at the saturated methyl group, leaving the double bond intact.Expand
