The mechanism of the increased cell growth and cellulose production of Acetobacter xylinum subsp. sucrofermentans BPR3001E, a sulfaguanidine (SG)-resistant mutant, was investigated. We found that adding p-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) to cultures of the parent strain, BPR2001, led to increased levels of intracellular adenosine-related purine compounds and… CONTINUE READING
