[Polyol dehydrogenases in mycobacteria (author's transl)].


Contrary to the the tubercle bacilli (H37Ra, BCG), Mycobacterium phlei, grown on Sauton medium, formed the NAD+ dependent dehydrogenases that catalyse the oxidation of ribitol, sorbitol and mannitol. These enzymes were separated by chromatography on DEAE-cellulose and Sephadex G-200. In the present work we have principally studied the ribitol dehydrogenase… (More)
