Abstract

SUMMARY: Wild-type strains of and grew in minimal salts media with acetamide or phenylacetamide as the carbon or nitrogen source. Wild-type strains of utilized acetamide but not phenylacetamide. A90 and mutants isolated from A87 and from 716 grew on phenylacetamide but not on acetamide. These activities were due to two types of amidase: (i) aliphatic amidases, which hydrolyse acetamide, produced by and strains of and and (ii) phenylacetamidases, which hydrolyse phenylacetamide, produced by some strains of and
