Mobile group II introns ("targetrons") can be programmed for insertion into virtually any desired DNA target with high frequency and specificity. Here, we show that targetrons expressed via an m-toluic acid-inducible promoter from a broad-host-range vector containing an RK2 minireplicon...

In this report, we experimentally demonstrate that improving the cis-regulatory region of a target promoter can significantly enhance the response to an otherwise poor inducer. The transcriptional factor (TF) BenR of Pseudomonas putida KT2440 is a member of the AraC/XylS...

The tolerance to, and degradation of m-toluate by Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris), a symbiotic mycorrhizal fungus (Suillus bovinus) and Pseudomonas fluorescens strains, with or without m-toluate-degrading capacity, was determined individually and in all symbiotic/associative plant-microbe combinations. Fungal survival on medium...

Growth of Pseudomonas putida (pWWO) on alkylbenzoates requires the expression of the meta pathway operon, which is mediated by the XylS protein after binding of a benzoate effector. Alternatively, in cells growing on toluene or its aromatic alcohols, overexpression of...

The effect of various lipophilic weak acids on the stability of certain TOL plasmids was investigated. Benzoate induced deletion of TOL plasmid DNA in Pseudomonas putida MT15, followed by loss of the plasmid; this effect was pH- and concentration-dependent, suggesting...
