Comments P.112 left column bottom paragraph: "The theoretical amount of ATP required for biosynthetic purposes is considerably different, however, if the cell material has to be synthesized from such different precursors as CO2 and glucose (Table 7)." P.121 left column 3rd paragraph: "The Y[max]ATP for bacteria growing on CO2 as sole carbon source has been calculated to be 5 (Table 7)." P.129 right column 2nd paragraph: "The Y[max]ATP of cells growing on fumarate as sole carbon source is 15.4 (Table 7)." Table gives ATP requirement (mol ATP/g cells) and Y[max]ATP (g of cells/mol ATP) for the following carbon sources: Glucose , Lactate- , Malate2- , Acetate- + CO2 , Acetate- , C02
