Two plasmid-harboring strains ofMicrococcus sp. (M-36 and AG-43) degrade malathion and chlorpyriphos. Derivatives of the strains (SDS-36 and AO-43) treated with acridine orange and sodium dodecyl sulfate could not utilize malathion and chlorpyriphos for growth as the sole carbon source. Agarose gel electrophoresis of cell extracts of M-36 and AG-43 revealed the presence of a plasmid which was absent in SDS-36 and AO-43—suggesting probable involvement of plasmids in the degradation of malathion… CONTINUE READING
