Table 1 Specific growth rates (μ) and stoichiometric parameters of strain JM101 grown on single or mixtures of carbon sources

From: New insights into Escherichia coli metabolism: carbon scavenging, acetate metabolism and carbon recycling responses during growth on glycerol

Condition μ (h−1) Yx/s(g/mmolC) qs (mmolC/gdcwh) mmolC of acetateproduced (+) or consumed (−)
Glucose 0.69 0.013 51.8 +28.2
Glycerol 0.49 0.014 34.3 Not detected
Glucose + glycerol 0.72 (0.45) 0.017(0.006) 43.1 +4.1
Glycerol + acetate 0.43 0.011 39.5 −11.0
Glucose + acetate 0.72(0.1) 0.013(0.017) 55.4(6.55) +6.0
  1. Mean values from at least three independent cultures are presented. Differences between values in these experiments were <10%. The numbers in parentheses indicate data for the specific strain in those stages in which only the remaining carbon source was available.
