- ... Various defined and minimal media are described for the growth of Clostridium sporogenes NCIB 8053. The organism requires 10 amino acids and one vitamin for growth, whilst three other vitamins are growth stimulatory. LâÎ±âhydroxy acid analogues can replace eight, and fatty acid analogues four, of these amino acids. The organism may generate free energy by a variety of Stickland reactions. Most ...

- ... The physiology of Clostridium sporogenes was investigated in defined, minimal media. In batch culture, the major end products of glucose dissimilation were acetate, ethanol and formate. When Lâproline was present as an electron acceptor, acetate production was strongly enhanced at the expense of ethanol. As judged by assay of the relevant enzymes, glucose was metabolized via the EmbdenâMeyerho ...
