Abstract

was grown in chemostat culture under glycerol-limited and ammonium-limited conditions at growth rates between 0·1 and 0·5 h. At steady state, the concentrations of cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP and the activities of four constitutive enzymes (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, isocitrate dehydrogenase, NADH oxidase and cyclic phosphodiesterase) were determined in the organism. Addition of exogenous cyclic AMP, cyclic GMP or phencyclidine perturbed the steady state and caused inhibition or stimulation of synthesis of phosphodiesterase and isocitrate dehydrogenase. A novel hypothesis is proposed to account for the ability of bacteria to regulate the synthesis of constitutive enzymes with cyclic nucleotides and possibly other small molecules.
