  journal={Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology},
High-density cultures of Pycnoporus cinnabarinus were tested with a view to optimisation of ferulic acid bioconversion into vanillin. The dry weight was increased fourfold by using glucose, fructose or a mixture of glucose and phospholipids as carbon source instead of maltose, the carbon source previously used. 5 mmol l−1 vanillin, i.e. 760 mg l−1, was produced over 15 days with glucose-phospholipid medium. In contrast, formation of vanillin was lower using glucose or fructose compared to the… CONTINUE READING
