Streptococcus rattus, a serotype b strain of mutans streptococci, was grown in an anaerobic glucose-limited chemostat. The molar growth yield of glucose [Yglucose, g dry wt (mol glucose)-1] together with the maximum growth yields (Ymax) and maintenance coefficients for glucose utilization and calculated ATP generation were estimated as a function of pH. When the pH was lowered from 7.0 to 5.0, Yglucose decreased, with a concomitant gradual change in the composition of the end product from a… CONTINUE READING
