Pelobacter venetianus, a strictly anaerobic bacterium recently isolated with polyethylene glycol (PEG) as substrate, ferments PEG's with molecular masses of 106–40000, as well as acetoin, ethanolamine, choline, and ethoxyethanol, to acetate and ethanol. Ethylene glycol (EG) and acetaldehyde were fermented in the same manner at limiting concentrations in continuous culture. Growth with glycolaldehyde led to acetate as sole fermentation product. Acetaldehyde appeared as byproduct of PEG… CONTINUE READING
