program of bacteriophage gh-1 dna transcription in infected pseudomonas putida.the program of transcription in phage gh-1-infected pseudomonas putida was examined. it was found that the host p. putida rna polymerase transcribes early rna from the l strand of gh-1 dna during the initial stages of infection. the host rna polymerase is also undoubtedly responsible for transcription of complementary rna late in the infectious cycle because complementary rna was not transcribed when rifampin was added to the infected cell culture. the gh-1-induced rna polymerase transcribes lat ...1979480467

local anesthetics block induction of the pseudomonas alk regulon.the local anesthetics procaine and piperocaine blocked induction of the plasmid-determined enzymatic activities involved in the metabolism of n-alkanes in pseudomonas putida. procaine reversibly inhibited existing alkane hydroxylase activity. induction of a soluble aliphatic amidase activity was not affected. these results support the hypothesis that induction of the plasmid-determined alkane metabolic system in p. putida involves a membrane component(s).1979533765
a theoretical interpretation of the variations of some physical parameters within the [2fe-2s] ferredoxin group.a model is proposed to explain the variation of some physical parameters within the reduced [2fe-2s] ferredoxin group. according to this model, the main effects result from a variable mixing of some d orbitals of the fe2+ ion owing to rhombic distortion of the active site having the same geometrical character, but different in intensity, for each protein. some peculiar experimental results such as the axial electron paramagnetic resonance spectra of adrenal ferredoxin and pseudomonas putida ferr ...1979465523
[naphthalene oxidation by a pseudomonas putida strain carrying a mutant plasmid].naphthalene oxidation by a parent and a mutant strain of pseudomonas putida was studied. the parent strain contained a plasmid npl-1 which controlled oxidation of naphthalene to salicylic acid and was capable of oxidizing salicylate. the mutant strain did not oxidize salicylate because of a mutation in salicylate hydroxylase; it contained also a mutant plasmid npl-41 which determined constitutive synthesis of naphthalene oxygenase. salicylic acid which accumulated as a product of naphthalene cat ...1978661635

origins of metabolic diversity: evolutionary divergence by sequence repetition.recurring patterns of primary structure have been observed in enzymes that mediate sequential metabolic reactions in bacteria. the enzymes, muconolactone delta-isomerase [(+)-4-hydroxy-4-carboxymethylisocrotonolactone delta(2)-delta(3)-isomerase, ec] and beta-ketoadipate enol-lactone hydrolase [4-carboxymethylbut-3-enolide(1,4)enol-lactone-hydrolase, ec], have been coselected in bacterial populations because the isomerase can confer no nutritional advantage in the absence of the ...1979291059
regulation of membrane peptides by the pseudomonas plasmid alk regulon.pseudomonas putida strains carrying the plasmid alk genes will grow on n-alkanes. induced alk+ strains contain membrane activities for alkane hydroxylation and dehydrogenation of aliphatic primary alcohols. p. putida cytoplasmic and outer membranes can be separated by sucrose gradient centrifugation after disruption of cells by either mild detergent lysis or passage through a french press. both the membrane component of alkane hydroxylase and membrane alcohol dehydrogenase fractionated with the ...1979533768
transport of c5 dicarboxylate compounds by pseudomonas putida.induced glutarate and 2-oxoglutarate uptake and transport by pseudomonas putida were investigated in whole cells and membrane vesicles, respectively. uptake of 2-oxoglutarate, but not glutarate, was against a concentration gradient to 1.7-fold greater than the initial extracellular concentration. membrane vesicles transported 2-oxoglutarate and glutarate against gradients to intramembrane concentrations fivefold greater than the initial extravesicle concentrations. the rates of transport of both ...1979479107
[interrelationships between carnitine metabolism and fatty acid assimilation in pseudomonas putida (author's transl)].the carnitine metabolism and some relations to the fatty acid metabolism were studied in pseudomonas putida by means of control of growth, analysis of metabolites, and determination of enzyme activites. the strain grew on gamma-butyrobetaine, d,l- and l-carnitine, glycinebetaine, choline, d,l-norcarnitine, d,l-gamma-amino-beta-hydroxybutyrate, and d,l-beta-hydroxybuty-rate. although the strain used straight-chain fatty acids of 2-16 c-atoms, it was only able to grow on o-acyl-l-carnitines of 10 ...1978565193
