Abstract Xanthomonas campestris M12 carrying OCT plasmid which could dissimilate octane was able to utilize n-alkanes of eight to sixteen carbon atoms via the capacity of this plasmid. M12 strain could utilize terminal oxidation products of these primary, alkanes, alcohols, aldehydes and fatty acids but not hexanoic acid, adipic acid, pimelic acid and heptanal. This strain also biodegraded n-alkanes by monoterminal or diterminal oxdation of straight-chain fatty acids, and branched-chain alkane.
