A mathematical model was constructed to describe the influence of the carbon to nitrogen ratio (C/N-ratio) of the growth medium on lipid production by oleaginous yeasts. To test this model and to determine some relevant model parameters, the oleaginous yeast Apiotrichum curvatum ATCC 20509 was grown in continuous cultures at various C/N-ratios and dilution rates. It appeared that when nitrogen is limiting for the formation of biomass, the remaining glucose can be converted to storage… CONTINUE READING
