Hydrogen partial pressures were measured in a thermophilic coculture comprised of a eubacterial rod which oxidized acetate to H(2) and CO(2) and a hydrogenotrophic methanogen, Methanobacterium sp. strain THF. Zinder and Koch (S. H. Zinder and M. Koch, Arch. Microbiol. 138:263-272, 1984) originally predicted, on the basis of calculations of Gibbs free energies of reactions, that the H(2) partial pressure near the midpoint of growth of the coculture should be near 4 Pa (ca. 4 x 10 atm; ca. 0.024… CONTINUE READING
