Four photosynthetic bacteria, isolated from 14 samples taken from seafood processing plants, were identified as species of Rhodocyclus gelatinosus, belonging to the purple, non-sulphur bacteria of the family Rhodospirillaceae. Cultivation in synthetic medium under four different conditions indicated that all four strains gave maximum carotenoid and bacteriochlorophyll synthesis under anaerobic conditions in the light, with values of 11 to 12.6 and 102 to 108 mg/g dry cell wt, respectively… CONTINUE READING
