TOL plasmid pWW15 contains two nonhomologous, independently regulated catechol 2,3-oxygenase genes.

Abstract

Pseudomonas putida MT15 contains a 250-kilobase-pair (kbp) TOL plasmid pWW15, encoding toluene and xylene catabolism, which undergoes large spontaneous deletions to give two classes of mutants with altered catabolic phenotypes (H. Keil and P. A. Williams, J. Gen. Microbiol, 131:1023-1033, 1985). Two structural genes for catechol 2,3-oxygenase (C23O) were… (More)
