Peptide degradation inStreptococcus cremoris


The capacity to produce an aldonic acid from aldose sugars is widespread among acinetobacters. The enzyme responsible for this reaction is a membrane-bound, pyrrolo-quinoline quinone (PQQ)dependent aldose dehydrogenase (E.C. 1.1.99,17). Fermentor studies with Acinetobacter calcoacetieus strain LMD 79.41 showed that thealdose dehydrogenase is synthesiT… (More)
