Glucose Catabolism of Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae


The pathways of glucose catabolism in Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae have been identified by the radiorespirometric technique. The radiorespirometric data showed that 96% of the glucose catabolism was via the Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas pathway with the remaining 4% dissimilated by the hexose monophosphate pathway. The products of the anaerobic dissimilation of glucose were determined. Lactic acid was the major product; ethyl alcohol, acetic acid, formic acid, and carbon dioxide were formed in smaller amounts.
