Abstract

Summary: The influence of specific growth rate on the ammonia-assimilating enzymes glutamine synthetase, NADP-linked glutamate synthase and NADP-linked glutamate dehydrogenase was studied in ammonia-limited and glucose-limited chemostat cultures of and . The response of these organisms, representatives of various ‘enzyme groups’ within the genus , showed considerable variation and confirmed the heterogeneity of the genus with respect to ammonia-assimilating enzymes. The overall significance of the glutamine synthetase/glutamate synthase pathway in any organism where the synthesis of these enzymes is not constitutive is questioned.
