Trace metals always act as cofactors or coenzymes in many cellular processes. Deficiency or excess of some metals will affect the fermentation of lignocellulosic hydrolysate. In order to make sure the deficient or excessive states of metals in culture medium, metal contents analysis was conducted in Pichia stipitis ATCC 58784 cells, synthetic medium, and diluted acid hydrolysate of rice straw. The results showed that Cu, Ni, and Co were deficient, and Al was a little excessive. So the… CONTINUE READING
