- Phosphate starvation-independent 2-aminoethylphosphonic acid biodegradation in a newly isolated strain of Pseudomonas putida, NG2N G Ternan
School of Biology and Biochemistry, The Queen s University of Belfast, Northern Ireland
Syst Appl Microbiol 21:346-52. 1998..The results point to the presence of a substrate inducible 2-aminoethylphosphonic acid biodegradation pathway in the isolated strain of Pseudomonas putida. Uniquely, therefore, the pathway is not under pho regulon control in this strain...
