Pseudomonas cepacia mutants deficient in either 6-phosphogluconate (6PGA) dehydratase (Edd-) or 2-keto-3-deoxy-6-phosphogluconate (KDPG) aldolase (Eda-) failed to utilize glucose or gluconate despite the prominence of of 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6PGAD) ii this bacterium and the potential for utilizing the pentose shunt suggested by its growth on ribitol and xylose. The Eda- strains grew normally on glucuronic acid, indicating that in P. cepacia its degradation does not depend upon KDPG… CONTINUE READING
