An ecological substrate relationship between sulfate-reducing and methane-producing bacteria in mud of Lake Vechten has been studied in experiments using 14C-labeled acetate and lactate as substrates. Fluoroacetate strongly inhibited the formation of 14CO2 from [U-14C]-acetate and β-fluorolactate gave an inhibition of similar magnitude of the breakdown of [U-14C]-l-lactate to 14CO2 thus confirming earlier results on the specific action of these inhibitors. The turnover-rate constant of l… CONTINUE READING
