Abstract

Summary: Utilization of acetate by four strains of was influenced by the composition of their growth medium. Growth-limiting glucose concentrations, low availability of CO and the presence of sodium lactate all stimulated acetate uptake by three strains. The type strain, , utilized acetate if the concentration of acetate added to the medium was at least 15 mol ml. In batch culture, all strains produced acetate before entering a phase of acetate uptake. Continuous-culture studies with one strain showed that acetate uptake was dependent upon growth rate. The amount of n-butyrate produced in batch or continuous culture was closely linked to the amount of acetate taken up.
