Abstract

Erythrobacter species OCh 114 is a strictly aerobic bacterium containing bacteriochlorophyll a. Although its growth is dependent on heterotrophic nutrition, light enhances its growth yield and CO2-fixation activity. A new category--aerobic photosynthetic bacteria--is proposed for Erythrobacter species OCh 114.
