Advances in Menaquinone-7 Production by Bacillus subtilis Natto : Fed-Batch Glycerol Addition

  title={Advances in Menaquinone-7 Production by Bacillus subtilis Natto : Fed-Batch Glycerol Addition},
  author={Aydin Berenjian and Raja Mahanama and Andrea M Talbot and Hubert L Regtop and John M. Kavanagh and Fariba Dehghani},
Menaquinone-7 was produced by fermentation mainly using Bacillus subtilis species. Due to the low concentration of menaquinone-7 in fermentation processes and the associated expense of recovering the menaquinone-7, it was desirable to improve the fermentation concentration. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of fed-batch glycerol addition in the production of menaquinone-7 during the fermentation of Bacillus subtilis natto in both small (25-mL) and bench scale (3-L) fermenters… CONTINUE READING
