Isotopic and enzymatic evidence shows that growth of Pseudonomas methanica on methane or methanol proceeds by a variant on the pentose phosphate cycle into which the carbon enters by addition of formaldehyde to ribose 5- phosphate giving allulose 6-phosphate. The metabolism of C-1 growth substrates by Pseudomonas AM1 has been studied by measurement of activities of enzymes involved in serine metabolism during growth on methanol or succinate, and by isolation of auxotrophic mutants. Studies have been made of regulation of autotrophic and heterotrophic metabolism in Pseudomonas oxalatious. Author
