Effect of Different Carbon Sources on the Production of Biosurfactant by Pseudomonas fluorescens Isolated from Mangrove Forests (Pichavaram), Tamil Nadu, India

  title={Effect of Different Carbon Sources on the Production of Biosurfactant by Pseudomonas fluorescens Isolated from Mangrove Forests (Pichavaram), Tamil Nadu, India},
  author={R. Parthasarathi},
Pseudomonas fluorescens isolated from mangrove forest soils of Pitchavaram, Cuddalore district, Tamil Nadu, India produces rhamnolipids when grown on different carbon sources tested. Maximum production of rhamnolipids were obtained with cashew apple juice as carbon source; a final production of 9.35 g rhamnolipid/l with a production yield of 46.75 per cent. However, among the carbon substrates, fructose does not support for the rhamnolipid production. The type of rhamnolipid production is R , R… Expand
