Abstract

SUMMARY: The mechanism of propionate formation by two strains of has been investigated using substrates specifically labelled by C. Both strains behaved similarly. When [2-C]lactate was fermented, the label in propionate was completely randomized in carbons 2 and 3. When cells were grown on lactate in the presence of CO, label was fixed exclusively into propionate carboxyl. The results are consistent with propionate being formed by the ‘succinate’ pathway.
