Abstract

SUMMARY: The growth responses of an acetate-utilizing isolate of to CO, acetate and pyruvate were determined using a chemically-defined medium. Carbon dioxide was essential for growth and both acetate and pyruvate increased growth. C from [1-C]acetate was found mainly in butyrate while C from CO or [1-C]pyruvate appeared predominantly in formate and lactate. These results, together with those obtained with enzyme preparations, indicated pyruvate synthase, pyruvate-CO exchange and pyruvate formate lyase to be active.
