Two pathways of l-glutamate catabolism were detected in the anaerobic bacterium F. varium. The methylaspartate route (A) was prominent, but the hydroxyglutarate pathway (B) functioned when cobalt ion and coenzyme B12 were absent from the culture medium. The detection of a cofactor independent glutamate racemase in cell extracts accounted for the catabolism of d-glutamate by F. varium.
