  • Volume: 13
A. Kistner, J.H. Kornelius and G.S. Miller Page: 217 - 220

The culture outflow-rate from a specially designed pH-auxostat continuous culture system can be used to calculate the specific growth rates of different bacterial species on suspensions of cellulose or other insoluble substrates. Provided a constant concentration of substrate is maintained…

An enzymatic approach to cell wall structure

  • 1983
  • Issue: 1
  • Volume: 13
R.E. Hungate, R.J. Stack, L.C. Greve & J.L. Labavitch Page: 51 - 52

Ruminococcus albus was incubated with isolated alfalfa cell wall material for 72 h in batch culture. Cellulose in the cell walls was digested to a somewhat greater extent (88%) than were the fermentable sugars of the hemicellulose fraction (62 -…
