Abstract

SUMMARY: Acetylene reduction by in shaken liquid cultures increased with increase of CH up to 0·74 atm. Acetylene reduction was linear for at least 40 min. The oxygen partial pressure also affected activity with most acetylene reduction at a O of 0·15 atm for liquid cultures grown in air.
