Abstract

SUMMARY: Of a large number of possible carbon sources only glucose, galactose, and acetate supported continued growth of in darkness. Cell synthesis in darkness with nitrate as the nitrogen source proceeded with a carbon assimilation of 45 % for glucose, 37 % for galactose, and 26 % for acetate. The energy efficiency (Rubner coefficient) of cell synthesis from glucose was affected by the nitrogen source and has a maximum value of 58 % with ammonia.
