An equimolar amount of 1,2-propanediol was detected in the medium when Salmonella typhimurium or Klebsiella pneumoniae fermented L-fucose or L-rhamnose. These metabolic conditions induced a propanediol oxidoreductase that converted the lactaldehyde formed in the dissimilation of either sugar into the diol. The enzyme was further identified by cross-reaction with antibodies against Escherichia coli propanediol oxidoreductase. This indicates that L-fucose and L-rhamnose fermentation takes place… CONTINUE READING
