Two modes of loss of the tol function from Pseudomonas putida mt-2
Some of a set of independently arising Tol- (non toluate-utilising) derivatives of Pseudomonas putida mt-2 have lost the unique plasmid present in the parent strain. In others this plasmid has suffered a deletion of a specific region of about 27 Md.
