It has been known that acetate and butyrate first formed during the acidogenic phase are reassimilated to form acetone-butanol-ethanol (cold channel). SKO1 was developed by targeted gene inactivation with a replicative plasmid capable of double-crossover chromosomal integration—a technique never used before with solventogenic clostridia. Clostridium perfringens usually produces a double zone of beta-hemolysis. Colonies on blood agar are nonhemolytic,1-5 mm in diameter, flat to raised, granular, grayish-white, glossy surface, translucent to semiopaque with irregular margins and occasionally with a mosaic internal structure. endstream acetobutylicum ATCC 10132 were developed. 2.
