R. W. Stone, P. W. Wilson
1952 Journal of Bacteriology  
It is now clear that in most animal tissues that have been thoroughly investigated the main pathway of terminral respiration takes place via the citric acid cycle as developed by Krebs (1940) , Green et al. (1948), and others. The mechanism of oxidative reactions of bacteria, however, is still confused because of the SUMMARY Cell-free extracts of Azotobacter vinelandii having the ability to oxidize acetate, pyruvate, and the acids of the citric acid cycle have been prepared by wet crush-[VOL. 63
