Abstract : Studies were performed on the cooxidation of various substrates, e.g., malathion, propylene, cyclohexane, polychlorinated biphenyls, and terpenes. The enzymes involved in cooxidation and commensalistic relationships whereby the products of an organism are utilized by another were investigated. (Author)
