Glucose-stimulated acidogenesis by Streptomyces peucetius

Canadian Journal of Microbiology
M L Dekleva, W R Strohl


Cultures of Streptomyces peucetius often were observed to divert spontaneously from the production of anthracycline antibiotics to the excretion of acidic metabolites, whether grown in a defined medium or a nutrient-rich medium. The predominant excreted acidic metabolites were determined by high-performance liquid chromatography to be pyruvate and 2-oxoglutarate. The acidification occurred at high frequencies when glucose was the primary carbon source in a defined medium, at intermediate frequencies when fructose was the primary carbon source, and did not occur when either maltose, starch, or dextrin were used as primary carbon sources.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.
