2-Propanol degradation by Sulfolobus solfataricus


Sulfolobus solfataricus used 2-propanol and 2-propanone (acetone) when grown in static cultures at 78 °C with or without glucose at 10 g l−1. The presence of 3.92 g 2-propanol l−1 in both cases inhibited growth. However, acetone accumulation following 2-propanol depletion suggested that 2-propanol was co-metabolized via the acetone metabolic pathway… (More)
