Abstract

SUMMARY: The electron transport systems of 134 strains of streptococci were studied after aerobic growth on glucose in the presence of haematin, by examining the inhibition of electron transport as well as the cellular site of NADH oxidation. Each strain was placed into one of three possible groups: cytochrome-like NADH oxidase; flavin-like NADH oxidase; or no NADH oxidase. Most (88%) of the strains of and its variants and and a few strains of and its variant contained cytochrome-like respiratory systems. Other streptococci including fell into one of the other groups but did not contain cytochrome-like NADH oxidases.
