Little is known about the electron transport chain from the quinohaemoprotein type I1 alcohol dehydrogenase. The arrangement with respect to the membrane and ubiquinone (UQ) of the subunits of the quinohaemoprotein type Ill alcohol dehydrogenase is illustrated in Fig.

The initial step in glucose metabolism usually involves uptake of glucose into the cell, followed by phosphorylation to glucose 6-phosphate (Fig. 16). Alternatively, glucose can be directly oxidized by glucose dehydrogenase to gluconic acid, which may then be further oxidized to 2-ketogluconic acid. As a result, acid accumulates in the growth medium and this is a diagnostic feature of the pseudomonads. The gluconate and 2-ketogluconate may be subsequently taken up by the bacteria and metabolized by the EntnerDoudoroff pathway.
