Pseudomonas AM1 grows on β-hydroxybutyrate and methanol at similar rates. β-Hydroxybutyrate is not metabolized by way of the glyoxylate bypass, but is assimilated by the novel route (with acetate as an intermediate) that operates during growth of this organism on ethanol. Evidence from short-term labelling experiments indicates that acetate, which is a possible intermediate in the assimilation of C1 compounds, is rapidly metabolized to glycine during growth of Pseudomonas AM1 on methanol.
