Calorific Content of Certain Bacteria and Fungi
Journal of Bacteriology
Calorific contents of dried cells of several representative species of bacteria (gramnegative rods and gram-positive rods and cocci), two species of yeasts, and a filamentous fungus were determined by bomb calorimetry. The grand mean was 5,383 cal per g of ash-free dry weight. This value was then used to determine quantity of energy assimilated (E.) during growth. Subsequently, E. was employed in the equation: Ykcal = Y/(Es + Ed), where Ykcal is the yield of cells per kilocalorie of energydoi:10.1128/jb.104.2.646-649.1970 fatcat:eedkoj745zfbxgwo5sxr2nlf3u
