The bacterium was characterized as a new species, Desulfocoecus biacutus. The strain grew with acetone with doubling times of 72 h to 120 h; the growth yield was 12.0 (+_2.1) g.[mol acetone] -1. Acetone was oxidized completely, and no isopropanol was formed. In labelling studies with 14CO2, cell lipids (including approx. 50% PHB) of acetone-grown cells became labelled 7 times as high as those of 3-hydroxybutyrate- grown cells. Enzyme studies indicated that acetone was degraded via acetoacetyl-CoA, and that acetone was channeled into the intermediary metabolism after condensation with carbon dioxide to a C4-compound, possibly free acetoacetate. Acetoacetyl-CoA is cleaved by a thiolase reaction to acetyl-CoA which is completely oxidized through the carbon monoxide dehydrogenase pathway. Strain KMRActS was deposited with the Deutsche Sammlung yon Mikroorganismen, Braunschweig, under the number DSM 5651.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Platen, Harald</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:35:40Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Schink, Bernhard</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Platen, Harald</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Archives of Microbiology 154 (1990), 4, pp. 355-361</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Schink, Bernhard</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>1990</dcterms:issued> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:35:40Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>Anaerobic degradation of acetone by Desulfococcus biacutus spec. nov.</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Temmes, Armi</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
