In the cource of investigation on L-glutamic acid production, acetate assimilating bacteria were isolated from natural sources. Among them, the strain No. 1214 was selected and characterized as a strain related to the genus Brevibacterium according to the standard method of taxonomy. This strain could grow in the acetate medium and accumulated a considerable amount of L-glutamic acid (22 g/L).
