Abstract

The outer membrane protein profiles of a toluene-tolerant mutant, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, strain PAK103, were compared with those of its parent strain PAO1161. Protein F (OprF), the most abundant outer membrane protein in the parental strain PAO1161, was missing in the toluene-tolerant strain PAK103. The absence of OprF may lead to the loss of toluene diffusion across in the outer membrane of the mutant cells.
