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°), 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°. 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.
