Rhodotorula mucilaginosa P11I89, isolated from oil-contaminated soil, was effectively used as the methanol-tolerant, whole-cell lipase for the synthesis of fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) via transesterification reaction in the presence of palm oil and methanol substrates at a 1:6 mole ratio. A combination of Taguchi experimental design and response surface methodology (RSM) were applied to systemically enhance transesterification activity of the whole-cell lipase or cell-bound lipase (CBL) from… CONTINUE READING
