In batch cultures of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, the maximum rate of exopolysaccharide synthesis occurred during exponential growth. In nitrogen-limited continuous culture, the specific rate of exopolysaccharide synthesis increased from 0.27 g g of cell-1 h-1 at a dilution rate (D) of 0.05 h-1 to 0.44 g g of cells h-1 at D=0.1 H-1. The yield of exopolysaccharide on the basis of glucose used was in the range of 56 to 64%. Exopolysaccharide was also synthesized in carbon-limited cultures at 0.19 g g… CONTINUE READING
