Abstract

Gluconobacter oxydans subsp. suboxydans ATCC 621 oxidizes d-xylose to xylonic acid very efficiently, although it cannot grow on xylose as sole carbon source.
The oxidation of xylose was found to be catalyzed by a membrane-bound xylose dehydrogenase. The xylono-γ-lactone formed in the oxidation reaction is subsequently hydrolyzed to xylonic acid by a γ-lactonase.
The complete oxidation pathway of d-xylose in G. oxydans is evidently located in the periplasmic space.
