Four of these isolates used 2-aminoethylphosphonic acid (AEP) as a sole carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus source. None of the other phosphonates served as a carbon source for the organisms. One isolate, identified as Pseudomonas putida, grew with AEP as its sole carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus source and released nearly all of the organic phosphorus as orthophosphate and 72% of the AEP nitrogen as ammonium. This is the first demonstration of utilization of a phosphonoalkyl moiety as a sole carbon source. Cell-free extracts of P. putida contained an inducible enzyme system that required pyruvate and pyridoxal phosphate to release orthophosphate from AEP; acetaldehyde was tentatively identified as a second product. Phosphite inhibited the enzyme system.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Journal of Bacteriology 133 (1978), 1, pp. 85-90</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:35:35Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Cook, Alasdair M.</dc:creator> <dc:language>deu</dc:language> <dcterms:issued>1978</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Daughton, Christian G.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Cook, Alasdair M.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Daughton, Christian G.</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Alexander, Martin</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
