Methanosarcina strain 227 grew rapidly and produced methane on a mineral medium containing acetate as the sole added organic substrate. Cell yields but not doubling times were affected by the presence or absence of yeast extract. Greater cell yields occurred in yeast extract medium than in mineral medium. Radioactive labeling studies showed that acetate was decarboxylated in mineral medium, as was shown previously in complex medium. The specific radioactivity of methane produced per specific… CONTINUE READING
