PH homeostasis and citric acid utilization: differences between Leuconostoc mesenteroides and Lactococcus lactis

, : PH homeostasis and citric acid utilization: differences between Leuconostoc mesenteroides and Lactococcus lactis. Current Microbiology 35(4): 233-236

This study presents the effects of citric acid and extracellular pH (pHe) on the intracellular pH (pHi) of wild-type and citrate negative variants (cit-) Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. mesenteroides (Ln. mesenteroides M) and Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis bv. diacetylactis (L. lactis LD). A recent method using a pH-sensitive fluorescent indicator carboxyfluorescein succinimidyl ester (cFSE) was adapted to measure the pHi of these two lactic acid bacteria in resting cells. Energized cells with 10 mM lactose of Ln. mesenteroides M and L. lactis LD modified their pH gradient (delta pH) in the same manner; when the pHe was decreased from 7 to 4, the pHi decreased from 7 to about 5. The adjunction of 10 mM citric acid had no effect on the pHi of wild-type and cit(-) variant of L. lactis LD, nor on the pHi of Ln. mesenteroides cit(-) variant. Nevertheless, in Ln. mesenteroides M wild-type, citric acid utilization increased the pHi, which was maintained at about 6.5-7.0 when the pHe was decreased from 7 to 4. It could be concluded that citric acid allows the maintenance of pH homeostasis in Leuconostoc mesenteroides.

Ultrasonic vibrations of 350,000/sec, applied at energy levels of 20-35 watts for 8-120 sec. are instrumental in causing an increased frequency of molting in T. viridescens. Energy levels above 35 watts are very rapidly lethal, but below this leve...
