Recombinant Zymomonas mobilis CP4:pZB5 was grown with pH control in batch and continuous modes with either glucose or xylose as the sole carbon and energy source. In batch cultures in which the ratio of the final cell mass concentration to the amount of sugar in the medium was constant (i.e., under conditions that promote "coupled growth"), maximum specific rates of glucose and xylose consumption were 8.5 and 2.1 g/(g of cell.h), respectively; maximum specific rates of ethanol production for… CONTINUE READING
