Notall strains resistant to 2-bromobutyrate(12 mM)were non-solvent-producing strains. The most efficient solvent-producing strains gave rise exclusively to colonies with dense centers containing large numbers of spores. Although Gram-positive rods are common, some of the colonies may have a convex shape with a few having a spherical or irregular shape.

Recently, it was shown that a homologue to Bacillus subtilis stage 0 sporulation protein A (Spo0A) controls both the onset of solventogenesis and the process of sporulation in Clostridium beijerinckii and C. acetobutylicum (18, 31) In strain SKO1 of C. acetobutylicum, where spo0A is inactivated, acetone and butanol production are reduced to 2 and 8% of wild-type levels, respectively. Other Clostridia produce several different-looking colony types, so the culture appears mixed.
