The aerobic metabolism of a mixture of acetate and starch was studied with main emphasis on their interaction and the effect on their storage as PHB and glycogen, respectively. Pulse feeding strongly increased the storage of both substrates; however, the presence of starch decreased PHB storage whereas the presence of acetate did not affect glycogen storage.
