Lactic streptococci, classically regarded as homolactic fermenters of glucose and lactose, became heterolactic when grown with limiting carbohydrate concentrations in a chemostat. At high dilution rates (D) with excess glucose present, about 95% of the fermented sugar was converted to l-lactate. However, as D was lowered and glucose became limiting, five of(More)
A method for the growth of Clostridium pasteurianum in a 140-liter (total capacity) stainless-steel vessel is described. By preventing the pH value from falling below 5.6, the growth of cultures was prolonged. Larger amounts of the carbon source (sucrose) and the nitrogen source (ammonium ion) were supplied and consumed, and cell yields of up to 5.56 g (dry(More)
The cell wall composition of strains of S mutans with respect to sugars and proteins appears to be correlated to the serological grouping although groups c and E are rather similar. There also appear to be similarities in the structure of the polysaccharide formed by the glycosyltransferases from organisms of serological groups b and d. However, the(More)
