(2016). are normally responsible for traditional surface vinegar production and high-acid vinegar production, respectively (Andrés-Barrao et al., 2016). Its components were identical to GY broth. Moreover, although A. senegalensis LMG 23690T exhibited the highest number of cells in Glc condition (Table 1), culturability of cells on GYEA agar was very low. Spoilage of cider by these bacteria may cause acidification and the so-called cider sickness of sweet ciders, characterized by an unpleasant odor and taste (acetaldehyde) and the formation of adducts of acetaldehyde with polyphenols, which has a milky, colloidal precipitate. A specialized citric acid cycle requiring succinyl-coenzyme a (coa): acetate coa-transferase (aarc) confers acetic acid resistance on the acidophile Acetobacter aceti. J. Biosci.

Still the latter were resistant to acetic acid and also could resume rapid growth in the presence of ethanol. (2013). doi: 10.1016/j.ijfoodmicro.2013.03.011, Shafiei, R., Delvigne, F., and Thonart, P. (2013b). We found that ClpB was up-regulated in the presence of ethanol (Table 2). Protein Sci. doi: 10.1016/, De Roos, J., and De Vuyst, L. (2018). In addition, although EtOH condition supported the growth of A. senegalensis LMG 23690T, it considerably inhibited the biomass formation which is attributed to the inhibitory effect of acetic acid following ethanol oxidation. They are particularly common in sour rotten grapes, which may increase acetic acid level in grape juices to values higher than 1 g l−1 of acetic acid. Acetic acid also is bacteriostatic to bactericidal, depending on the concentration. 64, 576–580. In conclusion, acclimation under appropriate sub-lethal conditions can be used as a method to improve cell phenotypic characteristics such as viability, growth under certain conditions, and tolerance to downstream processes. The macroscopic shape may be controlled using different methods of culture, namely static, submerged, or agitated; it is possible to form fleeces, foils, spheres, or tubes (Figure 4). doi: 10.1007/s00253-007-0851-x, Sokollek, S. J., and Hammes, W. P. (1997). doi: 10.4081/aab.2013.s1.e3, Mullins, E. A., Starks, C. M., Francois, J. Front. Practically, by acclimation to GlcAA condition, we achieved a qualified biomass which (i) showed an improved tolerance to freeze-drying process (ii) oxidized ethanol rapidly after rehydration. Biomass production during different growth phases was determined by measuring OD540 nm. Int. The up-regulation of this protein in combination with the other mentioned stress-response proteins, indicates that the cells acclimated to ethanol or acetic acid may suffer from damage to proteins or DNA. To acclimate cells to glucose, acetic acid and initial low pH, GYA broth containing 3% (w/v) acetic acid with initial pH 3.9 was used. In contrast, Acetobacter seemed to have cytochrome o as terminal oxidase (52, 53). The interaction between these microorganisms results in the formation of a floating layer on top of the tea. However, ethanol could not support the growth of A. senegalensis LMG 23690T in the absence of glucose. It contained all the components of GY broth plus 5% (w/v) ethanol and 1% (w/v) acetic acid. ; however, the maximum amount of biomass was considerably lower than the two other conditions (Figures 2A,B). Cells were acclimated to different carbon sources. It was demonstrated that the combination of sequential acclimation with fermentation under sub-lethal stress condition enabled A. senegalensis LMG 23690T to overcome some stress conditions such as freeze-drying process. 37, 5768–5783. In the next step, the acclimated cells were harvested and inoculated into GYEA broth containing 5% (w/v) ethanol and 1% (w/v) acetic acid, and then the growth was monitored. The up-regulated proteins were the members of heat shock protein family including: DnaK, GroEL (Hsp60), HtpG (Hsp90), GrpE (Hsp20/Alpha/HspA). doi: 10.1016/j.procbio.2016.05.018, Hoffmann, A., and Bukau, B. The presence or absence of glyoxylate pathway genes in the genome of acetic acid bacteria is also predicted to affect acetate productivity. J. Nucleic Acids Res. PT and FD supervised the whole work and revised the manuscript. Three different culture media (see section “Bacterial Strain and Culture Media”) were used to culture cells in bioreactor: (i) GY broth contained glucose as the main carbon source in regulated pH 3.9 ± 0.1 (this condition is referred as ‘Glc condition’ through this paper). Ceftriaxone may be the preferred agent.152 G. bethesdensis has been shown to persist in monocytes in patients with chronic granulomatous disease as a result of resistance to oxygen-independent microbicides in monocytes; this organism requires intact reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase for clearance.154. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) image of BC pellicle (left, dried with scCO2, magnification 5000 ×) and cotton linters (right, magnification 2000 ×). Acetic acid is the major volatile acid in wines. (2012). Acetobacter settling on flowers or fruits may be efficiently enriched in broth containing glucose (50gl−1), yeast extract (10gl−1), and cycloheximide (0.1mgl−1) (30°C). The pH optimum of the alcohol dehydrogenase in the Acetobacter oxydans and Acetobacter mesoxydans groups was 3.7–4.7, whereas it was 5.7–6.2 in Acetomonas. (ii) Enabling the acclimated and freeze-dried cells to grow rapidly on ethanol. Usually, in all alcoholic beverages containing less than 15% ethanol, formation of acetic acid is possible. This enzyme had an ionic strength requirement and was activated by potassium or ammonium ions. In this chapter, we provide an overview of the genomic features and whole-genome transcriptional profiles of A. aceti NBRC 14818 when cultured under various growth conditions to understand the molecular genetic basis for the metabolic switching from incomplete ethanol oxidation to acetate overoxidation. nov., Acetobacter tropicalis sp. To acclimate cells to ethanol, acetic acid and initial low pH (3.9 ± 0.1), GYEA agar with 5% (w/v) ethanol and 1% (w/v) acetic acid was used. Biochem. BC produced by Gluconacetobacter xylinum before purification. As already mentioned and shown in Table 2, GrpE did not show up-regulation in the presence of acetic acid (GlcAA condition), whereas an increase in GrpE was observed when ethanol was used as main substrate (EtOH). 16, 69–80.

(ii) GYA broth containing glucose and 3% (w/v) acetic acid as the main carbon sources in regulated pH 3.9 ± 0.1. (A) Cells acclimated to EtOH condition did not grow during 24 h. (B) Cells acclimated to glucose (Glc condition) started to grow after a long (10 h) lag phase. Pentitol oxidation by Aerobacter aerogenes leads to d-xylulose, l-xylulose and d-ribulose which are then metabolized by way of d-xylulose-5-phosphate and the pathways of pentose metabolism outlined in Chapter 6 (see Fig.
