Gluconobacter oxydans was grown successively in glucose and nitrogen-limited chemostat cultures. Construction of mass balances of organisms growing at increasing dilution rates in glucose-limited cultures, at pH 5.5, revealed a major shift from extensive glucose metabolism via the pentose phosphate pathway to the direct pathway of glucose oxidation yielding gluconic acid. Thus, whereas carbon dioxide production from glucose accounted for 49.4% of the carbon input at a dilution rate (D)=0.05 h-1… CONTINUE READING
