Example text

G. xylinus is found in nature on rotting fruits and a variety of niches that have fixed carbon in the form of sugars or alcohol. It is a strict aerobe, and so in many cases it is present at the air–medium interface where its presence can be detected readily if it produces a cellulose film or pellicle. The production of cellulose characterizes this bacterium both in liquid medium, where it produces a thick pellicle on the air–liquid interface, and isolated cells where a cellulose ribbon can be clearly seen attached to the long side of the cell.

In shaking cultures of G. xylinus, cellulose is produced as spherical or star-shaped structures in place of the matlike pellicle that is produced in stationary cultures. In addition, the amount of cellulose produced in shaking cultures is less than what is produced in stationary cultures. Another feature observed in shaking cultures is the presence, at a much higher ­frequency, of cells that do not produce a cellulose pellicle (Valla et al. 2009). The presence of these cells in large numbers makes the culture medium turbid.
