Pseudomonad organisms capable of degrading resin acids: Are they found in Antarctica? Soil samples from Mt Erebus
Entry ID: K023_1996_1997_NZ_1

Abstract: Pseudomonads are gram negative bacteria which are unique in their ability to degrade aromatic compounds such as xylene, napthalene and camphor and have recently been shown to degrade toxic resin acids derived from plant material. This study tried to isolate Antarctic pseudomonads which can degrade resin acids and characterise the bacteria and the enzymes involved in resin acid degradation. Soil ... View entire text
