Metabolism of D-arabinose: a new pathway in Escherichia coli.
Several growth characteristics of Escherichia coli K-12 suggest that growth on l-fucose results in the synthesis of all the enzymes necessary for growth on d-arabinose. Conversely, when a mutant of… Expand
Inducible xylitol dehydrogenases in enteric bacteria.
Morganella morganii ATCC 25829, Providencia stuartii ATCC 25827, Serratia marcescens ATCC 13880, and Erwinia sp. strain 4D2P were found to induce a xylitol dehydrogenase when grown on a… Expand
The Utilization of Pentitols in Studies of the Evolution of Enzyme Pathways
- R. P. Mortlock
Microbiologists generally agree that the earliest microorganisms to evolve were simple in their metabolic capabilities and had to be supplied with many preformed, complex molecules to satisfy their… Expand
Natural and altered induction of the L-fucose catabolic enzymes in Klebsiella aerogenes.
Mutants of Klebsiella aerogenes W70 were isolated that had gained the ability to utilize the uncommon pentose D-arabinose as their sole source of carbon and energy. In contrast to the… Expand
Metabolism of D-arabinose by Aerobacter aerogenes: purification of the isomerase.
In Aerobacter aerogenes, the mutational event permitting the utilization of d-arabinose as a source of carbon and energy is a regulatory mutation resulting in the constitutive synthesis of certain… Expand
The metabolism of D-arabinose by Salmonella typhimurium.
Little is known about the use of pentoses and pentitols by Salmonella typhimurium apart from a report by Gutnick et al. (1969) with S. typhimurium LT-2. Old (1977) showed that only D-ribose,… Expand
Regulation of D-xylose and D-arabitol catabolism by Aerobacter aerogenes.
Aerobacter aerogenes strain PRL-R3 possesses inducible enzyme pathways for the catabolism of d-xylose and d-arabitol. d-Xylose is the apparent inducer for d-xylose isomerase and d-xylulokinase.… Expand

Close genetic linkage of the determinants of the ribitol and D-arabitol catabolic pathways in Klebsiella aerogenes.
Klebsiella aerogenes strain W70 has separate inducible pathways for the degradation of the pentitols ribitol and d-arabitol. These pathways are closely linked genetically as determined by… Expand
Investigations into the antibiotic activity of tea fungus/kombucha beverage
Tea fungus/kombucha, an acetic acid flavoured fermented tea beverage, is widely consumed in various parts of the world and has more recently become a fad in the United States. This is due in part to… Expand
