Thermodynamic analysis of Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum

A thermodn. anal. based on the energy efficiencies of the growth of Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum is proposed. By taking into account the thermodn. and biochem. constraints, the range of possible biomass yields can be detd. One of the main reasons for the low free-energy efficiencies is the high energy requirements of the anabolic processes. [on SciFinder (R)]
