Abstract

The genome of Pseudomonas putida KT2440 encodes five proteins of the phosphoenolpyruvate-carbohydrate phosphotransferase system. Two of these (FruA and FruB) form a dedicated system for fructose intake, while enzyme I(Ntr) (EI(Ntr); encoded by ptsP), NPr (ptsO), and EII(Ntr) (ptsN) act in concert to control the intracellular accumulation of polyhydroxyalkanoates, a typical product of carbon overflow.
