Recombinant E. coli B (pLOI297) grows in Luria broth with mannose at a rate that is only about one-half of the rate with xylose and about one-quarter of the rate with glucose as carbon source. For a sugar concentration of about 2 % (w/v), the corresponding specific ethanol productivities (qp) are 0.22, 0.45 and 0.70 g ethanol/g cell/h for mannose, xylose… CONTINUE READING
