Carbohydrate metabolism and physiology of the parasitic protist Trichomonas vaginalis studied in chemostats.

Abstract

The parasitic protist Trichomonas vaginalis was cultured in chemostats with glucose or maltose as carbon and energy source. The maximum growth rate was about six divisions per day independent of the substrate, and the apparent Km for glucose was 0.375 mM. While growing on maltose, the growth rate depended linearly on the maltose concentration, indicating… (More)
