SUMMARY: Though CO2 is essential for the growth of Leuconostoc mesenteroides strain P 60 in the absence of serine, 14CO2 is not incorporated into serine by the growing organism. The synthesis of serine was further studied by using suspensions of a variant strain of L. mesenteroides P 60 which formed serine more actively than the parent strain. Glycine, formate, glucose, p-aminobenzoic acid and pyridoxal were required for the synthesis of serine by these suspensions. There was an additional… Expand

TLDR
In experiments with washed cells of L. mesenteroides, both l-alanine and l-threonine reduced the amount of C(14)-labeled formate fixed into serine and the amounts of glycine-1-C(14) found in boiling-water extracts of the cells. Expand
Biological Fundamentals for the Biotechnology of Lignocellulose
Lignocellulose is mainly composed of cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin. Microorganisms (fungi, bacteria, and actinomycetes) and animals can be used to degrade lignocellulose. However, theExpand

TLDR
Ascorbic acid, which behaved similarly to CO2 in partially preventing inactivation of leucovorin by suspensions of L. mesenteroides P60 variant strain, increased the synthesis of citrovorum factor from formate and p-aminobenzoic acid and partially satisfied the requirement of the growing L. Mesenteroide P 60 for CO2. Expand
The folic acid and serine nutrition of Leuconostoc mesenteroides P60 (Streptococcus equinus P60).
TLDR
A valid assay for serine is possible, even with high concentrations of glycine present, when precautions are taken to destroy either Leucovorin or pyridoxal in the samples, and to prevent the atmosphere becoming enriched with CO2. Expand
Some chemical factors which influence the amino acid requirements of the lactic acid bacteria.
TLDR
The present investigation shows that vitamin Bc influences the requirements for other amino acids as well, and the presence or absence of carbon dioxide is one of the most important factors which modify the amino acid requirements of these organisms. Expand
Chromatography of amino acids on sulfonated polystyrene resins.
TLDR
A systematic study has been made of the separations of amino acids by elution analysis on columns of synthetic ion exchange resins, demonstrating that synthetic resins are capable of separating most of the common amino acids from one another. Expand
Photometric ninhydrin method for use in the chromatography of amino acids.
TLDR
In the present investigations of the chromatographic separation of amino acids, it has been observed that, when the color development is carried out in tubes exposed to the air, these difficulties appear to result primarily from the influence of dissolved oxygen. Expand
