Production of exopolysaccharide by Pseudomonas sp. ATCC 31461 (Pseudomonas elodea ) using whey as fermentation substrate

  title={Production of exopolysaccharide by Pseudomonas sp. ATCC 31461 (Pseudomonas elodea ) using whey as fermentation substrate},
  author={Abednego M Dlamini and P. S. R. Peiris},
  journal={Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology},
An improved strain of Pseudomonas sp. ATCC 31461 (Pseudomonas elodea), capable of producing broth viscosities of 11 000 and 4700 mPa s (cP) when grown in enriched whey permeate and enriched sweet whey broths respectively, was isolated. The isolation was by serial transfers of the parent on lactose-rich and sweet whey broths. Maximum viscosities and biopolymer production were observed in 25% (v/v) whey concentration. In whey concentrations of 50% (v/v) or greater, residual glucose was detected… CONTINUE READING
