A Synthetic Medium for Bacterial Cellulose Production by Acetobacter xylinum subsp. sucrofermentans
Of several organic nitrogen sources tested, corn steep liquor (CSL) was found to be the most suitable for cellulose production by Acetobacter xylinum subsp. sucrofermentans BPR 2001. When lactate,Expand

NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductases of the Escherichia coli aerobic respiratory chain.
Deamino-NADH/ubiquinone 1 oxidoreductase activity in membrane preparations from Escherichia coli GR19N is 20-50% of NADH/ubiquinone 1 oxidoreductase activity. In comparison, membranes from E. coliExpand

Three distinct quinoprotein alcohol dehydrogenases are expressed when Pseudomonas putida is grown on different alcohols.
A bacterial strain that can utilize several kinds of alcohols as its sole carbon and energy sources was isolated from soil and tentatively identified as Pseudomonas putida HK5. Three distinctExpand

5-Keto-d-Gluconate Production Is Catalyzed by a Quinoprotein Glycerol Dehydrogenase, Major Polyol Dehydrogenase, in Gluconobacter Species
ABSTRACT Acetic acid bacteria, especially Gluconobacter species, have been known to catalyze the extensive oxidation of sugar alcohols (polyols) such as d-mannitol, glycerol, d-sorbitol, and so on.Expand
