Chorismate biosynthesis pathway and 4-aminobenzoate auxotrophy of G. bemidjiensis. (a) Multiplicity of enzymes of chorismate biosynthesis in G. bemidjiensis. Every step may be catalyzed by enzymes shared with G. sulfurreducens and G. metallireducens (purple arrows), but isozymes for some steps are unique to G. bemidjiensis (pink arrows). (b) Growth of G. bemidjiensis on NBAF medium on the first transfer without 4-aminobenzoate (PABA) supplementation (red triangles) compared to growth with PABA (red squares); the controls were G. sulfurreducens without PABA (blue triangles) and with PABA (blue squares).
