Abstract

Tests allowing the screening of large numbers of enterobacterial strains for the presence of the glucose oxidation pathway (glucose, gluconate, and 2-ketogluconate dehydrogenases) were devised or adapted. A total of 506 strains representing 111 taxa (named species or subspecies and unnamed genomic groups) were studied. The members of the genera and and the species and were negative in all tests. Five species, (at 20°C), and produced 2,5-diketogluconate from glucose without a requirement for pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ). When PQQ was provided (required for glucose oxidation), and produced 2,5-diketogluconate from glucose at 20°C. had gluconate- and 2-ketogluconate dehydrogenases without glucose dehydrogenase. The members of the genera and had only gluconate dehydrogenase. Other species had glucose dehydrogenase (with or without a requirement for PQQ) with or without gluconate dehydrogenase. Classification and identification may take advantage of tests exploring the glucose oxidation pathway.
