The metabolic fate of citrate and pyruvate in four strains of Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis biovar diacetylactis has been studied by means of C nuclear magnetic resonance, using as a substrate either [3-C]pyruvic acid or custom-synthesized citric acid that is C labeled either at carbons 2 and 4 or at carbon 3. The fermentations were carried out batchwise(More)
In this report, we compared the effects on the growth of Lactobacillus plantarum of raising the medium molarity by high concentrations of KCl or NaCl and iso-osmotic concentrations of nonionic compounds. Analysis of cellular extracts for organic constituents by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy showed that salt-stressed cells do not contain detectable(More)
