Lipid production of the oleaginous yeastApiotrichum curvatum was studied in wheypermeate to determine optimum operation conditions in this medium. Studies on the influence of the carbon to nitrogen ratio (C/N-ratio) of the growth medium on lipid production in continuous cultures demonstrated that cellular lipid content in wheypermeate remained constant at 22% of the cell dry weight up to a C/N-ratio of about 25. The maximal dilution rate at which all lactose is consumed in wheypermeate with… CONTINUE READING
