Production of glutaric acid: a useful criterion for differentiating Pseudomonas diminuta from Pseudomonas vesiculare.


A gas-liquid chromatographic procedure was used to determine short-chain acids produced by Pseudomonas diminuta and P. vesiculare after growth on Trypticase soy agar. Each of nine strains of P. diminuta produced glutaric acid, whereas none of the strains of P. vesiculare produced this acid.
