1. Two strains of Pseudomonas were grown with phenol and used to prepare cell extracts that metabolized catechol with the transient formation of 2-hydroxymuconic semialdehyde. 2. One of these preparations catalysed the conversion of 1mol. of catechol into 1mol. each of formate and 4-hydroxy-2-oxovalerate. 3. A method for the determination of 4-hydroxy-2-oxovalerate is described, together with some properties of this compound and its 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazone. 4. Another partially purified cell… CONTINUE READING
