Brevundimonas diminuta

A gram-negative, Pseudomonas-like colistin-resistant emerging pathogen, which may be isolated from clinical specimens—e.g., from the lungs of patients with cystic fibrosis or infective endocarditis.

We ourselves reported a squid-like enzyme from Pseudomonas diminuta that hydrolyzes the P-S bond of the VX-type nerve agents ([R.sub.1][R.sub.2]P(= O)S[R.sub.3]) and, more to the point, hydrolyzes DFP about eight times faster than Soman (2).
