The aims of this work were to characterize and improve cellulose production by a Gluconoacetobacter xylinus strain isolated from Kombucha and determine the purity and some structural features of the cellulose from this strain. Cellulose yield in tea medium with both black tea and green tea and in Hestrin and Schramm (HS) medium under both static and agitated cultures was compared. In the tea medium, the highest cellulose yield was obtained with green tea (~0.20 g/L) rather than black tea (~0.14… Expand

Spontaneous mutation results in lower cellulose production by a Gluconacetobacter xylinus strain from Kombucha
Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis of total proteins demonstrated the presence of the enzyme deoxythymidine diphosphate (dTDP)-4-dehydrorhamnose 3,5-epimerase in the mutant but not in the wild-type, which could be involved in the synthesis of acetan, which may reduce cellulose synthesis and be the basis for the characteristics of the mutant.

Cellulose synthesis by Komagataeibacter rhaeticus strain P 1463 isolated from Kombucha
The capacity of K. rhaeticus strain P 1463 to synthesise BC was found to be much higher than that of two reference strains for cellulose production, Komagataeibacter xylinus DSM 46604 and KomagATAeibacteria hansenii DSM 5602T, and was also considerably higher than the strain isolated from another Kombucha sample.

Bacterial cellulose production by Acetobacter xylinum ATCC 23767 using tobacco waste extract as culture medium.
Considering the huge disposal tobacco waste in China, the present study provides an alternative methodology to synthesize BC and showed the properties of BC obtained from TWE were similar to that from Hestrin-Schramm (HS) medium. Expand


A Synthetic Medium for Bacterial Cellulose Production by Acetobacter xylinum subsp. sucrofermentans
Of several organic nitrogen sources tested, corn steep liquor (CSL) was found to be the most suitable for cellulose production by Acetobacter xylinum subsp. sucrofermentans BPR 2001. When lactate,Expand
Factors affecting the yield and properties of bacterial cellulose
Physical properties of BC samples synthesized either in stationary cultures or in a horizontal fermentor revealed that cellulose from stationary cultures demonstrated a much higher value of Young's modulus, but a much lower value of water-holding capacity. Expand

Screening of Bacterial Cellulose-producing Acetobacter Strains Suitable for Agitated Culture
No correlation between the amounts of cellulose accumulated in shaken and static cultures was observed, and the producer that yielded the highest cellulose accumulation in shaken culture was selected and named Acetobacter sp. Expand
It is proposed that charged polysaccharides play a role similar to that of CMC in affecting the orientation of cellulose fibrils in the plant cell wall. Expand
It is suggested that individual cellulose molecules are released at the cell surface and diffuse into the medium, wherein they finally enter into crystal-line patterns. Expand
NMR studies of acetan and the related bacterial polysaccharide, CR1/4, produced by a mutant strain of Acetobacter xylinum.
2D NMR methods have been used to assign the 1H and 13C spectra of the two polysaccharides and to determine that CR1/4 has the structure shown below, which is identical to acetan. Expand
Cellulose-negative Mutants of Acetobacter xylinum
Chemical mutagenesis induced a high frequency of cellulose-negative mutants of Acetobacter xylinum without significant cell killing, in agreement with the hypothesis that cellulose enables the cells to reach the surface of the liquid medium, where the supply of oxygen is abundant. Expand
