Caption: Pseudomonas putida - Gram-negative, aerobic, enteric, rod prokaryote. Pseudomonas putida is a ubiquitous soil bacterium. Strains of P. putida have the ability to degrade organic solvents or hydrocarbons. This strain was isolated from a soil environment that had high levels of caffeine. It is known to biodegrade caffeine. Thus different strains of Pseudomonas putida can be used for bioremediation. Magnification*: x1,600 Type: SEM
