Abstract Pseudomonas putida utilized methyl parathion as sole carbon and (or) phosphorus source. The bacterium elaborated the enzyme organophosphorus acid anhydrase, which hydrolyzed methyl parathion to p-nitrophenol. p-Nitrophenol was further degraded to hydroquinone and 1,2,4-benzenetriol. The final ring compound, 1,2,4-benzenetriol, was cleaved by benzenetriol oxygenase to maleyl acetate.
