Desulfovibrio baarsii is a sulfate reducing bacterium, which can grown on formate plus sulfate as sole energy source and formate and CO2 as sole carbon sources. It is shown by 14C labelling studies that more than 60% of the cell carbon is derived from CO2 and the rest from formate. The cells thus grow autotrophically. Labelling studies with [14C]acetate, 14CO and [14C]formate indicate that CO2 fixation does not proceed via the Calvin cycle. The labelling patterns of alanine, aspartate…

Carbon assimilation pathways in sulfate-reducing bacteria II. Enzymes of a reductive citric acid cycle in the autotrophic Desulfobacter hydrogenophilus
TLDR
The data indicate that in D. hydrogenophilus a reductive citric acid cycle is operating in autotrophic CO2 fixation, and since other autotrophic sulfate reducers possess an acetyl CoA pathway for CO2fixing, two different autOTrophic pathways occur in the same physiological group.
Oxidative and reductive acetyl CoA/carbon monoxide dehydrogenase pathway in Desulfobacterium autotrophicum
In Desulfobacterium autotrophicum, a facultatively autotrophic, sulfate reducing eubacterium, CO2-fixing enzymes of the acetyl CoA/CO dehydrogenase pathway but neither key enzymes of the Calvin cycle
Acetate oxidation to CO2 in anaerobic bacteria via a novel pathway not involving reactions of the citric acid cycle
In several sulfate-reducing bacteria capable of complete oxidation of acetate (or acetyl CoA), the citric acid cycle is not operative. No 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase activity was found in these
Microbial growth on carbon monoxide
TLDR
The utilization of carbon monoxide as energy and/or carbon source by different physiological groups of bacteria is described and compared and the little information available on the nutritional and physicochemical requirements determining the sink strength is summarized.
Autotrophic synthesis of activated acetic acid from two CO2 in Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum
In a previous study with Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum evidence was presented that methanogenesis and autotrophic synthesis of activated acetic acid from CO2 are linked processes. In this
Acetate oxidation to CO2 via a citric acid cycle involving an ATP-citrate lyase: a mechanism for the synthesis of ATP via substrate level phosphorylation in Desulfobacter postgatei growing on acetate and sulfate
Desulfobacter postgatei is an acetate-oxidizing, sulfate-reducing bacterium that metabolizes acetate via the citric acid cycle. The organism has been reported to contain a si-citrate synthase (EC
The reductive glycine pathway allows autotrophic growth of Desulfovibrio desulfuricans
TLDR
Genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic analyses reveal that D. desulfuricans assimilates CO2 via the reductive glycine pathway, a seventh CO2 fixation pathway, which is reflected in the dependence of the autotrophic growth rate on the ammonia concentration.
Carbon isotopic heterogeneity of coenzyme F430 and membrane lipids in methane-oxidizing archaea.
TLDR
The data support the interpretation that ANME in marine sediments at methane seeps assimilate both methane and DIC, and the carbon isotopic compositions of the tetrapyrrole coenzyme F430 and the membrane lipids archaeol and hydroxy-archaeol reflect their relative proportions of carbon from these substrates.
Lithoautotrophic growth of sulfate-reducing bacteria, and description of Desulfobacterium autotrophicum gen. nov., sp. nov.
TLDR
Carbon autotrophy was evident from comparative growth experiments with non-autotrophic, acetate-requiring species, from high cell densities ruling out a cell synthesis from organic impurities in the mineral media, and by demonstrating that 96–99% of the cell carbon was derived from 14C-labelled CO2.
Oxidative and reductive acetyl CoA/carbon monoxide dehydrogenase pathway in Desulfobacterium autotrophicum
It has been proposed that in some anaerobic facultatively autotrophic bacteria the acetyl CoA/CO dehydrogenase pathway is operating both in the reductive and in the oxidative direction, depending on

Carbon monoxide fixation into the carboxyl group of acetyl coenzyme A during autotrophic growth of Methanobacterium
TLDR
The incorporation of 14C0 was specifically incorporated into carbon positions which are biosynthetically derived from the carboxy1 group of acetyl CoA, which itself is probably formed from CO2 via direct reduction.

TLDR
Data showed that acetyl CoA is the central intermediate for biosynthesis and excluded the operation of the Calvin cycle in A. woodii.

TLDR
All reactions of the proposed reductive tricarboxylic acid cycle could be demonstrated in autotrophically growing cells.
Acetyl CoA, a central intermediate of autotrophic CO2 fixation in Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum
TLDR
The finding that pyruvate was not incorporated into compounds derived from acetyl CoA, whereas acetate was incorporated into derivatives of acetylCoA and pyruVate in a 1:1 ratio demonstrates that pyrupvate is synthesized by reductive carboxylation of acety CoA.

TLDR
One-carbon metabolic transformations associated with cell carbon synthesis and methanogenesis were analyzed by long- and short-term ( 14)CH(3)OH or (14)CO(2) incorporation studies during growth and by cell suspensions and it was not possible to distinguish between acetate and acetyl coenzyme A as the immediate product of two-carbon synthesis with the methods employed.

Role of Carbon Dioxide and Acetate in Biosynthesis by Sulphate-reducing Bacteria
TLDR
This work has shown that the principal sulphate reducer, Desulphovibrio desulphuricans, in pure culture, can only use for this purpose the hydrogen of formate, isobutanol, lactate, pyruvate and ethanol, which are oxidized during the reduction of sulphate to carbon dioxide, butyrate and acetate as the case may be.

TLDR
The order of magnitude of the observed enzyme activities was sufficient to account for an oxidation of acetate via the citric acid cycle and for a synthesis of oxaloacetate from acetate and CO2 as anaplerotic reaction.
