Catalytic activity of zymomonas mobilis extracellular "levan-levansucrase" complex in sucrose medium.


The fructan biosynthesis by ethanol sedimented "levan-levansucrase" complex from Zymomonas mobilis fermentation broth as well as purified levansucrase was investigated. The fructooligosaccharide (FOS) producing activity of "levan-levamsucrase" sediment was investigated in 55% sucrose syrup at 45 degrees C. It was shown that FOS in the syrup were presented… (More)
