Bacterial Metabolism

bacterial metabolism in which the bacteria gets its nutrients and energy to survive. These bacteria require certain bio-elements which are tabulated below

ELEMENTS

FUNCTION IN METABOLISM

C, O, N, H

Main constitutes of cellular material

sulfur

Constitute of cysteine, methionine, thiamine, pyrophosphate, coenzyme-a, and biotin

Potassium

Constitute of nucleic acids, phospholipids, and nucleotides

phosphorous

Principle inorganic cation in the cell, cofactor of some enzymes

Magnesium

Cofactor of many enzymes, present in many cell walls, membranes, ribosome and phosphate esters

Calcium

Present in exoenzymes and cell walls. Ca-dipicolinate is an important component of endospores

Iron

Present in cytochromes, ferredoxins and other iron-sulfur proteins. Cofactor of enzymes

Sodium

Involved in various transport processes

chlorine

Important inorganic anion in the cell
