- Lactobacillus amylovorus, Gram-positive bacteria, lactic acid bacteria, carbohydrates, starch, hydrolysis, fermentation, microbial physiology, cattle manure, corn
- The morphology, physiology and fermentation characteristics of this hitherto unrecognized species are described. The new Lactobacillus sp. can be differentiated from L. acidophilus, L. jensenii and L. leichmannii on the basis of starch fermentation, G+C content, vitamin requirements and stereoisomerism of lactic acid produced. The type strain of L. amylovorus is NRRL B-4540.
