Key Words Studies on the metabolic activities of pseudomonas sp. in different carbon sources
Abstract In order to compare the metabolic activities of methanol utilizing bacteria, Pseudomonas sp. grown in different carbon sources, changes in respiratory activities, prinicipal enzyme activities for the energy metabolism, and the macromolecular compositions of the cells grown on methanol or glucose were measured. 1. The respiratory activity of cells grown on methanol was higher than that of cells grown on glucose, while glucose exhibited the highest O₂-consumption rate among the different respiratory substrates. 2. TRhe activity of hydroxy pyruvate reductase which participates in serine pathway was high in the cells grown on methanol. However, activities of NAD-linked alcohol dehydrogenase, formaldehyde dehydrogenase and formate dehydrogenase were slightly lower in the cells grown on glucose than on methanol. 4. For succinic dehydrogenase and malic dehydrogenase which take part in TCA cycle, the specific activities were higher in the cells grown on methanol than in those grown on glucose. No activity of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, which participates in pentose monophosphate shunt, was detectable in the cells grown on either carbon sources. 5. Protein contents of the cells grown on methanol increased relatively compared with those of the cells grown on glucose. However, there are no changes in the contents of carbohydrate and nucleic acid.
