Method Bacteria was cultivated under CO-dependent chemolithotrophic conditions. The composition of undefined medium (UM) was as previously described (Savage et al., 1986 PMID 3941046). Growth in UM was initiated with early-log-phase UM cultures. In all experiments, growth was initiated by injecting 1 ml of inoculum into 10 ml of fresh medium. To assess the effects of CO2 on CO-dependent growth, the initial CO/CO2 ratio was varied and the products formed were determined upon cessation of growth.
Comments This doubling time corresponds to growth rate of 0.099hours^-1. See bottom line in table link for amounts of acetate, CO2 and carbon formed. See BNID 105525
