Antibiotic resistance and enhanced insecticide catabolism as consequences of steroid induction in the gram-negative bacterium Comamonas testosteroni.

Abstract:

The effects of steroid induction on antibiotic resistance against the fungal steroid fusidic acid (ramycin; 16-(acetyloxy)-3 alpha,11 alpha-dihydroxy-29-dammara-17(20), 24-dien-21-oic-acid) as well as on carbonyl reduction and degradation of the novel anti-insect agent NKI 42255 (2-(1-imidazolyl)-1-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2-methyl-1-propanone) were studied in the Gram-negative soil bacterium Comamonas testosteroni strain ATCC 11996. Cells grown with testosterone as inducing agent showed a 5-6-fold ...
