Conversion of butyrate or propionate to acetate, (CO2), and hydrogen is endergonic under standard conditions, and becomes possible only at low hydrogen concentrations (10 4--10-5 bar). A model of energy sharing between fermenting and methanogenic bacteria attributes a maximum amount of about 20 kJ per mol reaction to each partner in this syntrophic cooperation system. This amount corresponds to synthesis of only a fraction (one-third) of an ATP to be synthesized per reaction.<br />Recent studies on the biochemistry of syntrophic fatty acid-oxidizing bacteria have revealed that hydrogen release from butyrate by these bacteria is inhibited by a protonophore or the ATPase inhibitor DCCD (N,N'-dicyclohexyl carbodiimide), indicating that a reversed electron transport step is involved in butyrate or propionate oxidation. Hydrogenase, butyryl-CoA dehydrogenase, and succinate dehydrogenase acitivities were found to be partially associated with the cytoplasmic membrane fraction. Also glycolic acid is degraded to methane and CO 2 by a defined syntrophic coculture. Here the most difficult step for hydrogen release is the glycolate dehydrogenase reaction (E~=-92 mV). Glycolate dehydrogenase, hydrogenase, and ATPase were found to be membrane-bound enzymes. Membrane vesicles produced hydrogen from glycolate only in the presence of ATP; protonophores and DCCD inhibited this hydrogen release. This system provides a suitable model to study reversed electron transport in interspecies hydrogen transfer between fermenting and methanogenic bacteria in methanogenic biomass degradation.
