Abstract

Summary: and all grow in an amino acid medium, using glutamate and forming ammonia from it. After the glutamate has been used, and deaminate aspartic acid, serine, glycine, alanine and proline. , as well as these amino acids, deaminates threonine, valine, methionine, the leucines and phenylalanine, leaving only histidine, lysine and arginine. grows the most rapidly of the three and the most slowly. All three organisms oxidize glutamate to give CO and ammonia but in each some nitrogen is unaccounted for. contains a glutamic decarboxylase and forms a pink pigment from tyrosine.
