dc.description.abstract Most strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae require supplimental carbon dioxide (C0„ ) or bicarbonate (HCO ) for growth upon primary isolation . 14 1 In initial growth studies using ( C ) bicarbonate , Talley and Baugh demonstrated that most of the bicarbonate assimilated during the growth of the organism was found in the protein and nucleic acid fractions . Cox and Baugh reported that the Michaelis constant for HCO of partially purified phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPCase ) from N^ . gonorrhoeae to be 0 .27 mM and concluded that this enzyme was probably not the direct cause of the organism's requirement for supplemental HCO , for growth . This Michaelis constant was several times lower than that of PEPCases from any other bacteria even those not requiring supplemental HCO _ for growth . en_US
