A strain of Cyanidium caldarium has been studied which is able to grow in darkness using amino acids as sole energy sources. During growth ammonia was released into the external medium as a catabolic end product. With either threonine or glutamate similar rates of ammonia formation and similar kinetics of growth were observed. These observations suggest… CONTINUE READING
