The bacterium Xanthomonas campestris, which synthesizes the commercially important polysaccharide xanthan, was grown aseptically in 1.2 L fermenters using semicontinuous cell culture technique (d' = 0.0035 h-1). The effects of carbon-substrate concentration on xanthan production were investigated at three initial glucose concentrations (Go = 15, 20, 25 g/L… CONTINUE READING
