He used to be fairly drawn to their choice for maltose over glucose as a resource of carbohydrate for development, expressed as a rule as a extra speedy progress at the disaccharide; yet one isolate may develop purely on maltose. finally we confirmed that maltose used to be being utilised via 'direct fermentation' because the older texts referred to as it, in particular by way of the phosphorolysis which had first been proven for maltose by way of Doudoroff and his affiliates of their paintings on maltose metabolism by means of a pressure of Neisseria meningitidis.
