Abstract

Citrate was fermented by if a second substrate, such as glucose, lactose or lactate, was available to the organism. The function of the second substrate was to provide reducing power for the formation of succinate from oxaloacetate. Citrate lyase, malate dehydrogenase, fumarase and fumarate reductase were present in cell extracts of at high activity. Oxaloacetate decarboxylase could not be detected, and it is assumed that this lack is the reason for the inability of to grow anaerobically with citrate as the only carbon and energy source.
