Abstract

Summary: sp. XG is a facultative methylotroph. Determination of the activities of several enzymes and use of mutants unable to grow on methanol indicated that in this Gram-positive strain methanol was metabolized through the serine pathway. Synthesis of the enzymes of this pathway was induced when cells were grown in the presence of methanol or its catabolic products.
