Thiobacillus novellus was able to grow with oxalate, formate, formamide, and methanol as sole sources of carbon and energy. Extensive growth on methanol required yeast extract or vitamins. Glyoxylate carboligase was detected in extracts of oxalate-grown cells. Ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase was found in extracts of cells grown on formate, formamide, and thiosulfate. These data indicate that oxalate is utilized heterotrophically in the glycerate pathway, and formate and formamide are utilized… CONTINUE READING
