Method Growth was performed in supplemented M9 medium with glycerol and electron transfer acceptors as described in ref. Growth rate (Mu) was calculated from growth curves (batch cultures) with the respective substrates in M9 medium.
Comments Low value (0.21hour^-1, doubling time 3 hours 18min) for growth on (Glycerol + fumarate) substrate. High value (1.33 hour^-1, doubling time 31min) for growth on (Glycerol + O2)
