Abstract

SUMMARY

One hundred and forty-eight Gram-negative bacteria, mostly pseudo-monads and achromobacters, were tested for glucose utilization by detection of acid production and by an enzymic method for detecting residual glucose. The enzyme test showed that some bacteria which produced little or no acid in glucose media (e.g. , groups III and IV of Shewan, Hobbs & Hodgkiss, 1960) did remove glucose from the media. Representatives of the genus did not produce acid from glucose or remove it.
