Über die Umwandlung von markiertem Glykokoll durchFusarium lycopersici
C14-methylene-labelled glycine was added to growing mycelium ofFusarium lycopersici. Young, rapidly growing mycelium converts about 2% of the radioactivity into carbon dioxyde; with older mycelium,

TLDR
Seven strains of extremely halophilic bacteria fixed CO2 under light and dark conditions and a novel pathway for non-reductive CO2 fixation involving a glycine synthase reaction with CO2, NH4+, and a methyl carbon derived from the β-carbon cleavage of propionate is tentatively proposed.

Glycine fermentation via a glycine reductase in Peptococcus glycinophilus and Peptococcus magnus
Peptococcus glycinophilus and P. magnus (P. variabilis) utilized only glycine-containing compounds for growth and required selenium compounds for the fermentation of glycine in an optimized medium.
Glycine metabolism in anaerobes
TLDR
Except for the different substrate-activating proteins PB, reduction of sarcosine or betaine to acetyl phosphate involves in Eubacterium acidaminophilum the same set of proteins as observed for glycine, e.g. a unique thioredoxin system as electron donor and an acetyl phosphorous-forming protein Pc interacting with the intermediarily formed Secarboxymethylselenoether bound to protein PA.
Peptidoglycan types of strains of the genus Peptococcus
TLDR
Determination of the primary structure of the peptidoglycan of 8 strains of Peptococcus showed that 4 different peptidlycercan types occur, which is a valuable criterion for the classification of peptococci.
Acetate via Glycine: A Different Form of Acetogenesis
In contrast to acetogenesis via the acetyl-CoA pathway, acetogenesis via glycine has never been reviewed in detail. The carbon flow of the glycine-dependent process was earlier depicted mostly as the
Factors affecting hydrogen production and consumption by human fecal flora. The critical roles of hydrogen tension and methanogenesis.
TLDR
It is concluded that most H2 produced by colonic bacteria is consumed and methanogenesis and fecal stirring are critical determinants of H2 consumption and, hence, net H2 production.
The acetyl-CoA pathway of autotrophic growth
TLDR
It is concluded that the formation of acetyl-CoA by other acetogens, the methanogens and sulphate-reducing bacteria occurs by a mechanism very similar to that of C. thermoaceticum.
