Abstract

Growth of under low oxygen tension resulted in specific activities two to twenty times lower for formate dehydrogenase, malate dehydrogenase, -hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase, lactate oxidase and NADH dehydrogenase than when cultures were grown under high aeration. An increase in fumarate reductase and succinate dehydrogenase occurred with grown under low oxygen tension. Malate: vitamin K dehydrogenase and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity were not significantly affected by the oxygen tension used to grow the bacteria, and neither culture contained a lactate dehydrogenase. With growth of in conditions of low oxygen tension, cytochrome was not detected, but cytochrome was prominent in membranes and cytochrome was present in the soluble fraction
