Zoogloea
ramigera 1-16-M was found to

Zoogloea ramigera has
been found to contain two stereospecific acetoacetyl CoA reductases; 1)NADP+-linked
with D-?-fi-hydroxybutyryl-CoA specific,2) NAD+-linked and L(+)-isomer specific(Saito, Fukui, Ikeda, Tanaka, & Tomita, 2000). The NADP
+-linked enzyme has a pH optimum for the reduction of acetoacetyl CoA at PH of
8.1, however for the oxidation of hydroxybutyryl –CoA, optimum PH is   not definite.

Zoogloea is not choosy
nutritionally, thus a variety of organic carbon sources in a simple defined
media may be used to culture it (Gerardi, 2007).Poly-?-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) is produced
whenever both a carbon source is highly present as well as B-ketothiolase. PHB
synthesis and intracellular degradation is partially controlled by NADPH and availability
through glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase enzyme with optimum operating PH of
8.5 .The species is also known to use Mn-oxidation metabolism because the
matrix made by Zoogloea takes in and concentrated metal in water sources

This
bacteria’s staining is Gram-negative(Friedman, Dugan, Pfister, & Remsen, 1968). They are Neisser
negative.  (Neisser positive turns
purple, while Neisser negative turns yellow). With this feature they can be
differentiated from filamentous.

Zoogloea ramigera forms characteristic cell aggregates surrounded by gellatinous
matrices, the zoogloeal matrices. This matrix  is composed of extracellular polymer strands
of polysaccharides(Friedman et al., 1968). The polysaccharide coating of Zoogleal bacteria is always high or
excessive, see figure (2) below.
