None of the strains produced acid from glycerol, D-arabinose, L-xylose, [beta]-Methyl-xyloside, dulcitol, inositol, glycogene, xylitol, D-lyxose, D-fucose, L-arabitol, 2-ceto-gluconate, 5-ceto-gluconate.
2]O) ethanol containing 25 mg dulcitol (an internal standard) in an Eppendorf tube that had been rinsed with 0.
Although we did not apply the 14 biochemical tests to differentiate the 5 isolates (2), the isolates' lack of indole production and dulcitol utilization, obtained by use of Enterotube II (Becton Dickinson Diagnostic Systems), was compatible with identification of the following 3 species or subspecies: C.
Burkholderia thailandensis also assimilates L-arabinose and adonitol and does not assimilate dulcitol and erythritol, in contrast to B pseudomallei.
All the isolates were examined for the following biochemical characteristics: oxidase production, urease production, Methyl Red and Vogues Proskauer test, indole production, citrate production, arginine dehydrolase, lysine decarboxylase, ornithine decarboxylase, gluconate, malonate, acid production from arabinose, dulcitol, glucose, lactose, maltose, mannitol, raffinose, rhamnose, sorbitol, sucrose, trehalose, and xylose (MacFaddin, 1980).
Root extracts are therapeutically active and appear to induce fewer side effects than extracts from the leaves and stem of the herb and more than 70 compounds have been identified in the roots including diterpinoids, triterpinoids, sesquiterpinoids, alkaloids, [beta]-sitosterol, dulcitol and glycosides (Tao and Lipsky 2000).
In 1850, Laurent isolated the carbohydrate dulcitol and later showed it to be isomeri c with mannitol.

This bacteria was found to be able to hydrolyze various carbohydrates, including L-arabinose, galactose, fructose, mannose, [alpha]-methyl-D-glucoside, N-acethyl-glucosamine, D-turanose, salicin, cellobiose, [beta]-gentiobiose, and D-xylose (Table 1), but did not utilize D-arabinose, erythritol, sorbose, dulcitol, inositol, [alpha]-methyl-D-mannoside, Lactose, D, L-arabitol, 2-keto-gluconate, or 5-keto-gluconate (Table 1).
