Riboflavin Production during Growth of Micrococcus luteus on Pyridine †

By Gerald K. Sims and Edward J. O'Loughlin

Abstract

Micrococcus luteus produced 29 μM riboflavin during growth on 6.5 mM pyridine but not during growth on other substrates. On the basis of the results of radiolabelling studies, riboflavin was not directly synthesized from pyridine. Pyridine may interfere with riboflavin biosynthesis or elicit a general stress response in M. luteus
