Abstract The effect of testosterone as the sole carbon source on protein expression was analyzed in Comamonas testosteroni. Testosterone simultaneously induced the expression of steroid- and aromatic hydrocarbon-catabolizing enzymes and repressed one amino acid-degrading enzyme. It is suggested that steroids play a regulative role in catabolic enzyme synthesis during adaptive growth of C. testosteroni.
