Growth and lactose metabolism of a Leuconostoc mesenteroides strain were studied in batch cultures at pH 6.5 and 30° C in 101 modified MRS medium sparged with different gases: nitrogen, air and pure oxygen. In all cases, growth occurred, but in aerobiosis there was oxygen consumption, leading to an improvement of growth yield Y x/s and specific growth rate compared to anaerobiosis. Whatever the extent of aerobic growth, oxygen uptake and biomass production increased with the oxygen transfer… CONTINUE READING
