The effects of organic acid anions on the growth of Syntrophomonas wolfei was determined by varying the initial concentration of the acid anion in the medium. The addition of 15 mM acetate decreased the growth rate of a butyrate-catabolizing coculture containing Methanospirillum hungatei from 0.0085 to 0.0029 per hour. Higher initial acetate concentrations decreased the butyrate degradation rate and the yield of cells of S. wolfei per butyrate degraded. Inhibition was not due to the counter ion… CONTINUE READING
