Optimization of methanol biosynthesis from methane using Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b

Abstract

Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b oxidized methane to methanol in the presence of a high concentration of Cu2+. Further oxidation of methanol to formaldehyde was prevented by adding 200 mm NaCl which acted as a methanol dehydrogenase H inhibitor. The bacterium, 0.6 mg dry cell ml−1, in methane/air (1:4, v/v) at 25 °C in 12.9 mm phosphate buffer (pH 7… (More)
