the metabolism of thymol by a pseudomonas.1. pseudomonas putida when grown with thymol contained a meta-fission dioxygenase, which required ferrous ions and readily cleaved the benzene nucleus of catechols between adjacent carbon atoms bearing hydroxyl and isopropyl groups. 2. 3-hydroxythymo-1,4-quinone was excreted towards the end of exponential growth and later was slowly metabolized. this compound was oxidized by partially purified extracts only when nadh was supplied; the substrate for the dioxygenase appeared to be 3-hydroxythymo-1 ...19684303067

spin-state changes in cytochrome p-450cam on binding of specific substrates.the electron paramagnetic resonance signals of the soluble p-450 cytochrome from pseudomonas putida were observed at temperatures from 4.2 to 80 degrees k. as isolated, p-450 has a signal typical of a low spin ferric-heme compound with sulfur as one of the axial ligands (g = 2.45, 2.26, 1.91(5)). we also detected a minor signal typical of high spin ferric heme (g = 8, 4, 1.8) equivalent to less than 7% of the heme at temperatures below 20 degrees k. on titration with the substrate, (+)-camphor, ...19704319883

a heat-stable nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide glycohydrolase from pseudomonas putida kb1. partial purification and some properties of the enzyme and an inhibitory protein.a thermostable nad(p)(+) glycohydrolase (ec detected in cell-free extracts of pseudomonas putida kb1 was purified to a single component on polyacrylamide-gel electrophoresis. a heat-labile inhibitor of the enzyme was also partially purified. enzyme free of inhibitor is present in culture supernatants. after an ultrasonic treatment enzyme-inhibitor complex and excess of inhibitor are present in both the cell-debris and soluble fractions. the general properties of the enzyme and inhibitor ...19724345853
metabolism of phenol and cresols by mutants of pseudomonas putida.mutant strains of pseudomonas putida strain u have been obtained which are deficient in enzymes of the degradative pathways of phenol and cresols. mutant strains deficient in catechol 2, 3-oxygenase accumulated the appropriate catechol derivative from cresols. a mutant strain which would not grow on either phenol or a cresol was shown to be deficient in both 2-hydroxymuconic semialdehyde hydrolase and a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, oxidized form, (nad(+))-dependent aldehyde dehydrogenase. ...19734347965
the oxidation of nicotinic acid by pseudomonas ovalis chester. the terminal cell-free extracts of pseudomonas ovalis nicotinic acid oxidase is confined to the wallmembrane fraction. it is associated with an electron-transport chain comprising b- and c-type cytochromes only, differing proportions of which are reduced by nicotinate and nadh. co difference-spectra show two co-binding pigments, cytochrome o (absorption maximum at 417nm) and another component absorbing maximally at 425nm. cytochrome o is not reduced by nadh or by succinate but is by nicotinate, which can ...19724349118

a transmissible plasmid controlling camphor oxidation in pseudomonas putida.earlier papers demonstrated an extensive genetic exchange among fluorescent pseudomonads; this one documents for genes specifying enzymes of peripheral dissimilation an extrachromosomal array, segregation, and frequent interstrain transfer. an hypothesis is presented of a general mechanism for the formation and maintenance of metabolic diversity. the example used, the path of oxidative cleavage of the carbocyclic rings of the bicyclic monoterpene d- and l-camphor, terminates in acetate release a ...19734351810
common enzymes of branched-chain amino acid catabolism in pseudomonas putida.two types of pseudomonas putida ppg2 mutants which were unable to degrade branched-chain amino acids were isolated after mutagenesis and selection for ability to grow on succinate, but not valine, as a sole source of carbon. these isolates were characterized by growth on the three branched-chain amino acids (valine, isoleucine, and leucine), on the corresponding branched-chain keto acids (2-ketoisovalerate, 2-keto-3-methylvalerate, and 2-ketoisocaproate), and on other selected intermediates as c ...19734352175

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

purification and propeties of (plus)-cis-naphthalene dihydrodiol dehydrogenase of pseudomonas putida.cells of pseudomonas putida, after growth with naphthalene as sole source of carbon and energy, contain an enzyme that oxidizes (+)-cis-1(r),2(s)-dihydroxy-1,2-dihydronaphthalene to 1,2-dihydroxynaphthalene. the purified enzyme has a molecular weight of 102,000 and apparently consists of four 25,500 molecular weight subunits. the enzyme is specific for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide as an electron acceptor and also oxidizes several other cis-dihydrodiols. however, no enzymatic activity was ob ...19744369091

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

pseudomonas putida mutants defective in the metabolism of the products of meta fission of catechol and its methyl analogues.a selection procedure is described which was used to isolate mutants of pseudomonas putida strain u in the following enzymes of the meta-fission pathway of phenol and cresols: hydrolase, tautomerase, and decarboxylase. strains deficient in the hydrolase are unable to use either o- or m-cresol as a sole carbon source and were shown to accumulate 2-hydroxy-6-keto-2,4-heptadienoate when incubated in the presence of o- or m-cresol. when 2-hydroxymuconic semialdehyde (plus nicotinamide adenine dinucl ...19744418942

bacterial degradation of 4-hydroxyphenylacetic acid and homoprotocatechuic acid.a species of acinetobacter and two strains of pseudomonas putida when grown with 4-hydroxyphenylacetic acid gave cell extracts that converted 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (homoprotocatechuic acid) into carbon dioxide, pyruvate, and succinate. the sequence of enzyme-catalyzed steps was as follows: ring-fission by a 2,3-dioxygenase, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-dependent dehydrogenation, decarboxylation, hydration, aldol fission, and oxidation of succinic semialdehyde. two new metabolites, ...19744420192
