In vitro NMR techniques and substrates selectively enriched with C-13 were used to follow the step-by-step metabolism of glucose and xylose, on their own or as mixed substrates in the ratio as they occur in hydrolysates from hemicellulose. The organism used was a newly isolated strain of Klebsiella planticola isolated from soil where maize has been cultivated for 30 years. Results suggest that glucose is converted to pyruvate via the Embden-Meyerhof pathway and then to lactate and ethanol. No evidence of 2,3-butandiol or formate metabolism was observed. This organism had a higher rate of uptake of xylose than previously studied microorganisms, resulting in ethanol, lactate, acetate succinate and formate as end products. Xylose metabolism in K. planticola G11, unlike that reported for many other organisms, was not inhibited by glucose. The addition of glucose, after 2 h of xylose fermentation, did not change the rate of xylose metabolism.
