Physiological responses of Pseudomonas putida to formaldehyde during detoxification

Abstract

Pseudomonas putida KT2440 exhibits two formaldehyde dehydrogenases and two formate dehydrogenase complexes that allow the strain to stoichiometrically convert formaldehyde into CO(2). The strain tolerated up to 1.5 mM formaldehyde and died in the presence of 10 mM. In the presence of 0.5 mM formaldehyde, a sublethal concentration of this chemical, the… (More)
