Effect of minerals on glucose isomerase production by Streptomyces kanamyceticus

Abstract

A study has been made of the mineral requirements of Streptomyces kanamyceticus KCC S-0433 for production of glucose isomerase. The optimal concentrations of MgSO4 and K2HPO4 for enzyme production are 0.07% and 0.05%, respectively. The elements Fe, Mn and Zn are required at levels of 10, 3 and 3 mg/l, respectively. Cu, Co and Ca have inhibitory effects on the production of the enzyme.
