Modulation of Carbon and Electron Flow in Clostridium acetobutylicum by Iron Limitation and Methyl Viologen Addition

Abstract

The metabolic flexibility of Clostridium acetobutylicum during growth on glucose with methyl viologen addition (1 mM) and/or iron limitation was examined in batch cultures at pH 5.5. The physiological effects of iron limitation and methyl viologen addition are additive, suggesting that they have different and complementary sites of action.
