The metabolism of Gluconacetobacter oboediens was investigated in relation to different carbon sources for the continuous cultures at the dilution rate of 0.05 h−1. The 13C-flux result implies the formation of metabolic recycles for the case of using glucose and acetate as carbon sources. When glucose and ethanol were used as carbon sources, the specific ethanol uptake rate and the specific acetate production rate increased as the feed ethanol concentration was increased from 40 to 60 g/l… Expand
Central Carbon Metabolism and Respiration in Gluconobacter oxydans
An overview on recent studies concerned with central carbon metabolism and respiration in G. oxydans is presented and corresponding data for species of Acetobacter and Gluconacetobacter are discussed. Expand
Revealing Differences in Metabolic Flux Distributions between a Mutant Strain and Its Parent Strain Gluconacetobacter xylinus CGMCC 2955
A mutant strain, Gluconacetobacter xylinus AX2-16, was obtained by combined chemical mutation of the parent strain using DEC (diethyl sulfate) and LiCl and it was indicated from the flux analysis that more ATP was produced in mutant strain from pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) and TCA cycle. Expand
Bacterial NanoCellulose Synthesis, Recent Findings
Abstract In this chapter we attempted to summarize recent reports on molecular biology and metabolism of bacteria belonging to the genus Gluconacetobacter with focus on its application for celluloseExpand
Molecular aspects of bacterial nanocellulose biosynthesis
This review discusses current knowledge about the molecular basis of BNC biosynthesis, its regulations, and presents a perspective on the genetic modification of B NC producers made possible by the new tools available for genetic engineering. Expand
Current status of 13C-metabolic flux analysis and future perspectives
Abstract Current 13 C-metabolic flux analysis methods were reviewed as well as the weakness of the conventional metabolic flux analysis without 13 C-labeled experiments. Although it has beenExpand
Acetic Acid Bacteria
Acetic acid bacteria are currently accommodated in the acetous group, the family Acetobacteraceae, the class Alphaproteobacteria, based on phylogeny, physiology, and ecology. The acetic acid bacteriaExpand


Glucose Fermentation Pathway of Thermoanaerobium brockii
Thermoanaerobium brockii was shown to catabolize glucose via the Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas pathway into ethanol, acetic acid, H(2)-CO(2), and lactic acid, and cell growth yields supported the glucose catabolic pathway described. Expand
Uptake and Metabolism of Carbohydrates by Bradyrhizobium japonicum Bacteroids.
The overall results support the view that, although bacteroids metabolize sugars, the rates are very low and are inadequate to support nitrogenase. Expand
Environmental and physiological factors affecting the succinate product ratio during carbohydrate fermentation by Actinobacillus sp. 130Z
Actinobacillus sp. 130Z fermented glucose to the major products succinate, acetate, and formate. Ethanol was formed as a minor fermentation product. Under CO2-limiting conditions, less succinate andExpand
Responses of theCentral Metabolism in Escherichia coli to PhosphoglucoseIsomerase and Glucose-6-Phosphate DehydrogenaseKnockouts
Although knockout of G6P dehydrogenase had no significant influence on the central metabolism under glucose-limited conditions, this mutation resulted in extensive overflow metabolism and extremely low tricarboxylic acid cycle fluxes under ammonia limitation conditions. Expand
Effect of zwf gene knockout on the metabolism of Escherichia coli grown on glucose or acetate.
The metabolic flux analysis based on (13)C-labeling experiments indicates that the metabolism of the mutant grown on glucose is related to the higher flux via tricorboxylic acid (TCA) cycle to generate anabolic reducing equivalents normally provided by the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway, however, the mutation grown on acetate shows a lower flux towards the TCA cycle as compared with the parent strain.

Elucidation of Enzymes in Fermentation Pathways Used by Clostridium thermosuccinogenes Growing on Inulin
Based on the presence and absence of enzyme activities, the biochemical pathways for the fermentation of inulin byClostridium thermosuccinogenes DSM 5809 are proposed and there was an unexplained detection of increased reduced products (ethanol, lactate, and hydrogen) with a concomitant decrease in oxidized-product formation at the higher temperature.

Production of a high concentration acetic acid by Acetobacter aceti using a repeated fed-batch culture with cell recycling
Repeated fed-batch cultivation with cell recycle was effective for increasing the production rate of acetic acid and obtaining high amounts close to a lethal concentration. Expand
Enhanced expression of aconitase raises acetic acid resistance in Acetobacter aceti.
Electrophoretic analysis of a soluble fraction of Acetobacter aceti revealed the presence of several proteins whose production was enhanced, to various extents, in response to acetic acid in the medium, and showed that aconitase is concerned with acetic Acid resistance. Expand
Acetobacter aceti Possesses a Proton Motive Force-Dependent Efflux System for Acetic Acid
The efflux pump of Acetobacter aceti IFO 3283 was examined using intact cells and membrane vesicles and uptake was shown to be rather specific for acetic acid and to be pH dependent, because higher uptake was observed at lower pH. Expand
Metabolic flux and metabolic network analysis of Penicillium chrysogenum using 2D [13C, 1H] COSY NMR measurements and cumulative bondomer simulation.
The results obtained using the extended version of the nonoxidative pentose phosphate pathway model show that the transketolase and transaldolase reactions need not be assumed reversible to get a good fit of the (13)C-labeling data. Expand
