Abstract

The catabolism of -histidine and -hydroxybenzoate in 3841 is inducible. Glucose or succinate have relatively little effect on the induction of histidase whereas they produce about 50% repression of the -hydroxybenzoate catabolic system. When grown in the presence of a mixture of carbon sources, e.g. glucose plus histidine, or succinate plus -hydroxybenzoate, the cells co-utilize both substrates. However, consumption of histidine and -hydroxybenzoate (which support slower growth rates than glucose or succinate) is substantially reduced in comparison with that of glucose or succinate.
