Bacteroides succinogenes S-85 grows readily in media containing 0.2% (w/v) filter paper cellulose or microcrystalline cellulose as the carbohydrate source. During growth, the cells appear to adhere to the cellulose. Cell-free culture supernates and cell extracts from cellulose-grown cultures had very low hydrolytic activity against either filter paper or crystalline cellulose (Avicel) as substrate, although H3PO4-swollen cellulose, carboxmethylcellulose, and cellobiose were readily hydrolyzed… CONTINUE READING
