Abstract

SUMMARY

A sp. isolated from orchard soil utilized ursolic acid (CHO), a major component of apple wax, as a sole source of carbon. It evolved CO from [C]ursolic acid and incorporated the label into all usual cell constituents; it formed a labelled polar metabolite of ursolic acid. Orchard soil thus contains at least one organism which is able to degrade the terpenes of the cuticular wax of plants.
