Description

Dorea demonstrate a fermentative metabolism under strictly anaerobic conditions 3 1. Glucose, fructose, galactose, lactose, maltose and other sugars are fermented 3. D. formicigenerans produces acetate, formate and ethanol from pyruvate 3 1. Cells in pure culture are rods, which occur in pairs or chains 3. D. longicatena occur in chains of 4-200 cells in length 3.
