Thermoanaerobacter ethanolicus in a comparison of the growth efficiencies of thermophilic and mesophilic anaerobes.

By L S Lacis and H G Lawford

Abstract

Maintenance coefficients and theoretical maximum growth yields, with respect to both substrate and ATP, were estimated for Thermoanaerobacter ethanolicus growing in a glucose-limited, continuous culture. A comparison of these values with those for other bacteria showed that, contrary to predictions by others, anaerobic thermophiles had neither low observed growth yields nor high maintenance energy coefficients
