Growth kinetic analyses of Borrelia burgdorferi indicated that this bacterium can utilize a limited number of carbon sources for energy: the monosaccharides glucose, mannose, and N-acetylglucosamine, the disaccharides maltose and chitobiose, and glycerol. All of these carbohydrates are likely to be available to B. burgdorferi during infection of either vertebrate and arthropod hosts, enabling development of a model describing energy sources potentially used by the Lyme borreliosis spirochete… CONTINUE READING
