The extent of oxidation of glucose by Rhizobium meliloti has been determined by comparing the amount of oxygen consumed with the theoretical amount necessary for complete oxidation to carbon dioxide and water. With M/540, M/270, and M/180 concentrations of glucose as a substrate, the rate of oxygen consumption increased rapidly for a period of from 4 to 8 hours then decreased to a low and fairly constant value. The total consumption of oxygen was approximately one-third of the amount required for complete oxidation of the glucose.
