AIMS To identify strains of Cheddar cheese nonstarter lactobacilli that synthesize succinate from common precursors and characterize the biochemical pathways utilized. METHODS AND RESULTS Whole cell incubations of Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus zeae and Lactobacillus rhamnosus, were used to identify strains that accumulated succinate from citrate, l-lactate, aspartic acid or isocitrate. In vivo 13C-nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (13C-NMR) identified the… CONTINUE READING
