  1. Their ability to reduce nitrate was assessed as described in Materials and Methods. Their sugar degradation capability was assessed using Gallery API 50 CH. 1 means that the strain efficiently fermented the sugar, 0 means that the strain was unable to degrade the sugar. Intermediate phenotypes were scored 0.25, 0.50, 0.75, indicated that the sugar was partially used by the strain.
  2. Footnote: Glucose, glycerol, mannose, galactose, inositol, adonitol, erythritol, esculine were degraded by all studied strains.
  3. Arbutine is not a sugar but a glycosylated quinone. No further efforts were made to reconstruct its degradation pathway.
