Abstract : Activities of enzymes implicated in a sc eme of biosynthesis of cell constituents from C1 growth substrates have been measured in Pseudomonas AMI grown on methanol, formate and succinate, and the values compared. A phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase from this organism has been purified and its properties studied. Attempts have been made to isolate glycineserine- orglyoxylate- requiring mutants of Pseudomonas AMI. Oxalyl coenzyme A has be n syn hesized nd it properties examined. Contributions of heterotrophic and autotrophic growth of Pseudomonas oxalaticus on oxalate are being measured.AD-29315 1N1 +++The metabolism of C1 - compounds and O alic acid, and the enzy s nd coenzymes involved have been studied in microorganisms.
