Remarks: The rumen contents of red deer (Cervus elaphus) were used to isolate bacterial capable of fermenting glycerol. The biochemistry, physiology, morphology and phylogeny of one isolate were studied in detail. The isolate (DR3) was tentatively identified as a strain of the species Klebsiella planticola as based on phenotypic characterization. The data obtained from 16S rRNA sequence analysis showed that the deer rumen isolate DR3 was 99.7% similar to the type strain of Kl. planticola (DSM 3069T), thus confirming the results of the phenotypic characterization. During cell growth, it was established that glycerol dissimilation by Kl. planticola DR3 led to the production of formate and ethanol at equimolar levels of 32 mmol 1(-1) and 30 mmol 1(-1), respectively. As a result of the data obtained, a closed carbon balance was constructed for Kl. planticola DR3. This finding represented the first report of the complete end-product profile for glycerol dissimilation by a strain of Kl. planticola isolated from cervine rumen contents.

Note:

The Culture Collections hold cell cultures, bacteria, fungi and virus strains from worldwide sources. Our scientists ensure that the identification of the cultures is correct and they remain unchanged from when they are first deposited with the Collection. Nevertheless, some of the data we provide about the cultures is supplied by the person depositing the strains and, although we have multiple checking procedures in place, we cannot always verify all their data. Please note that the Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data provided by the depositors.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are to be used as controls for microbiology testing and for research purposes only. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.
