Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Glucose catabolism in eight Xanthomonas species has been comparatively examined by means of the radiorespirometric method. The basic mechanisms for the respective xanthomonads closely resembled each other. The Entner-Doudoroff pathway, in conjunction with the tricarboxylic acid cycle pathway, was the predominant mechanism for glucose catabolism. A small portion (8 to 16%) of substrate glucose was routed into the pentose phosphate pathway. The hexose cycle pathway did not appear to play any significant role in glucose catabolism of these xanthomonads. The results are also consistent with the well-recognized close phylogenic relationship between xanthomonads and pseudomonads.
