The Marburg strain of Butyribacterium methylotrophicum did not grow on CO alone but did consume CO during growth on a variety of substrates in the presence of a 100% CO gas phase. We selected a strain (the CO strain) that grew vigorously on CO alone. The ability of the CO strain to grow on CO was stable through multiple transfers in the absence of CO. CO dehydrogenase activity was lower in the CO strain grown on CO (13.3 micromol/min per mg of protein) than in the Marburg strain grown on… CONTINUE READING
