Description
Oenococcus oeni has numerous amino acid requirements for growth and dipeptides could be important for its nutrition. In this paper the individual or combined effect of dipeptides on growth of O. oeni X2L in synthetic media deficient in one or more amino acids with L-malic acid was investigated. Utilization of dipeptides, glucose, and L-malic acid was also analyzed. Dipeptides were constituted by at least one essential amino acid for growth. Dipeptides containing two essential amino acids, except leucine, had a more favorable effect than free amino acids on the growth rate. Gly-Gly was consumed to a greater extent than Leu-Leu and a rapid exodus of glycine to the extracellular medium accompanied it. The microorganism could use glycine in exchange for other essential amino acids outside the cell, favoring growth. In the presence of Leu-Leu, the increase in glucose consumption rate could be related to the additional energy required for dipeptide uptake.
