Mycelia of Streptomyces sp. T 59-235 and Streptomyces tendae Tü 901 (producing the antibiotics tylosin and nikkomycin, resp.) were immobilized in different carriers. With both organisms best antibiotic production was observed in calcium alginate gel. Influence of aeration, cell density and flow rate on antibiotic production was investigated in batch(More)
The antibiotic nikkomycin can be produced by calcium alginate immobilized mycelium of Streptomyces tendae Tü 901 in batch and continuous culture. Scanning electron micrographs show the porous structure of the matrix and the distribution of the cells in the gel. Some physiological properties of free and immobilized mycelia were compared. Immobilization does(More)
