regulation of pathways degrading aromatic substrates in pseudomonas putida. enzymic response to binary mixtures of substrates.1. induction constants (k(ind)) and repression constants (k(rep)), which are a measure of the affinity of the inducers or repressors for the induction systems, were measured for mandelate, benzoate and p-hydroxybenzoate in pseudomonas putida. 2. from these results, the enzymic response of the organism to media containing pairs of these substrates was predicted. nitrogen-limited chemostats, operated at high growth rates, were used to investigate these predictions in cells grown first on one aroma ...19725073241
evidence for induced synthesis of an active transport factor for mandelate in pseudomonas putida.1. at low concentrations of mandelate there is a lag before induction of the mandelate regulon begins at a sub-maximum rate. cells preinduced with a saturating concentration of inducer do not exhibit this lag when they are transferred to sub-maximum inducer concentrations and are able to maintain a high rate of induction under these conditions. 2. chloramphenicol was used to show that a protein is synthesized during the lag period that is probably responsible for the maintenance effects observed ...19725073242
genetic control of enzyme induction in the -ketoadipate pathway of pseudomonas putida: two-point crosses with a regulatory mutant strain.several mutant strains of pseudomonas putida, selected on the basis of their inability to grow at the expense of benzoate, have been shown to be unable to form inducibly both muconate lactonizing enzyme and muconolactone isomerase. a secondary mutant strain derived from one of these pleiotropically negative strains forms these two enzymes and, in addition, catechol oxygenase in the absence of inducer. this constitutive mutant strain was used as a donor in transductionally mediated two-point cros ...19725058453

proton magnetic resonance reveals high-spin iron (ii) in ferrous cytochrome p450 cam from pseudomonas putida.high-resolution proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectra were studied in d(+)-camphor-saturated solutions of ferric and ferrous cytochrome p450(cam) from pseudomonas putida, and of the cyanide complex of ferric p450(cam). in all these compounds several hyperfineshifted resonances of the heme group could be detected. in the ferrous protein, these resonance lines, which exhibit a curie-type temperature dependence in the range of 5-28 degrees , indicate the presence of high-spin iron (ii). it is s ...19724506075
genetic basis of the biodegradation of salicylate in pseudomonas.the genetic basis of the biodegradation of salicylate in pseudomonas putida r1 has been studied. this strain utilizes the meta pathway for oxidizing salicylate through formation of catechol and 2-hydroxymuconic semialdehyde. the enzymes of the meta pathway are induced by salicylate but not by catechol, and the genes specifying these enzymes are clustered. the gene cluster can be eliminated from some salicylate-positive cells by treatment with mitomycin c and appears to exist inside the cell as a ...19724628746
kinetics of deoxyribonucleic acid destruction and synthesis during growth of bdellovibrio bacteriovorus strain 109d on pseudomonas putida and escherichia coli.during the growth of bdellovibrio bacteriovorus on pseudomonas putida or escherichia coli in either 10(-3)m tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane or in dilute nutrient broth, the host deoxyribonucleic acid (dna) was rapidly degraded, and by 30 to 60 min after the initiation of the bdellovibrio development cycle essentially all host dna became nonbandable in cscl gradients. at this stage the host dna degradation products were nondiffusable, and there was no appreciable pool of low-molecular-weight (col ...19724559819
stereospecific enzymes in the degradation of aromatic compounds by pseudomonas putida.two reactions in the catabolism of catechol by meta-fission, namely, hydration of 2-oxopent-4-enoate (vinylpyruvate) and aldol fission of the product, are catalyzed by stereospecific enzymes. the absolute configuration of this hydration product was shown to be l(s)-4-hydroxy-2-oxopentanoate. vinylpyruvate hydratase, purified almost to homogeneity, had a molecular weight of about 287,000 and was dissociated in sodium dodecyl sulfate, without prior treatment with mercaptoethanol, into a species wi ...19734690969
incidence and identification of pseudomonas fluorescens and pseudomonas putida in the clinical laboratory.strains of pseudomonas producing fluorescin but no pyocyanin or pyorubrin were studied by biochemical and antibiotic sensitivity testing. a rapid nitrate test was found to be useful in distinguishing p. aeruginosa (positive) from p. fluorescens and p. putida (both negative). a shortened gelatin test differentiated p. fluorescens (positive) from p. putida (negative). p. fluorescens and p. putida were very sensitive to low levels of kanamycin and resistant to carbenicillin, a pattern just the oppo ...19734631431
camphor plasmid-mediated chromosomal transfer in pseudomonas putida.camphor-utilizing strains of pseudomonas putida have been shown to carry the genetic information required for camphor degradation on a plasmid. the plasmid-carrying strains can serve as donors of both plasmid-borne and chromosomal genes. as recipients, plasmid-deleted strains are much superior to those carrying the camphor pathway genes. the transfer frequency of chromosomal, but not plasmid-borne, genes is markedly enhanced if the donor cells are irradiated with ultraviolet light followed by 3- ...19734745436

fusion and compatibility of camphor and octane plasmids in pseudomonas.the octane (oct) plasmid in pseudomonas putida derived from the omega-hydroxylase-carrying strain of coon and coworkers is transferable to the camphor (cam) plasmid-bearing strain by conjugation or by transduction. while the majority of the cam (+)oct(+) exconjugants segregate cam(+) or oct(+) cells, exconjugants with stable cam (+)oct(+) phenotype (cam-oct) can be detected at a low frequency. the transductants are all of the cam-oct phenotype. in the stable cam (+)oct(+) strains, the oct plasmi ...19744527812
a role of the putidaredoxin cooh-terminus in p-450cam (cytochrome m) hydroxylations.methylene hydroxylation by cytochrome p-450(cam) (cytochrome m) can be resolved into four distinct steps: substrate addition, m(o) --> m(os); reduction, m(os) --> m(rs); dioxygen addition, m(rs) --> m(o2) (rs); followed by a second putidaredoxin (pseudomonas putida ferredoxin)-mediated reduction and product formation. the isolated ferrous oxy-substrate complex exhibits first-order decay kinetics with the relatively slow rate constant of k [unk] 0.01 sec(-1), at 25 degrees , without product relea ...19744530269
dissociation and interaction of individual components of a degradative plasmid aggregate in pseudomonas.the transfer of the oct plasmid from pseudomonas oleovorans to pseudomonas putida strain ppgl results in the acquisition of three independent replicons: oct, factor k, and the mer plasmid. oct is a nontransmissible plasmid harboring genes that code for the enzymes responsible for the degradation of n-octane. factor k is a transfer plasmid capable of mobilizing oct as well as chromosomal genes but incapable of enhancing transfer frequencies of other transmissible plasmids such as cam, sal, or rp- ...19744530312
metabolism of benzoate and the methylbenzoates by pseudomonas putida (arvilla) mt-2: evidence for the existence of a tol plasmid.mutant strains of pseudomonas putida (arvilla) mt-2 which have lost the ability to grow at the expense of m- or p-toluate (methylbenzoate) but retain the ability to grow with benzoate arise spontaneously during growth on benzoate; this genetic loss occurs to a lesser extent during growth on nonaromatic carbon sources in the presence of mitomycin c. the mutants have totally lost the activity of the enzymes of the divergent meta pathway with the possible exception of 2-oxopent-4-enoate hydratase a ...19744418209

d-lysine catabolic pathway in pseudomonas putida: interrelations with l-lysine catabolism.the isolation of several mutant strains blocked in l-lysine degradation has permitted an assessment of the physiological significance of enzymatic reactions related to lysine metabolism in pseudomonas putida. additional studies with intact cells involved labeling of metabolic intermediates from radioactive l- or d-lysine, and patterns of enzyme induction in both wild-type and mutant strains. these studies lead to the conclusions that from l-lysine, the obligatory pathway is via delta-aminovalera ...19744359655
