Gluconobacter sp. NBRC3259 converted glycerol to glyceric acid (GA). The enantiomeric composition of the GA produced was a mixture of DL-forms with a 77% enantiomeric excess of D-GA. After culture conditions, such as initial glycerol concentration, types and amounts of nitrogen sources, and initial pH, were optimized, Gluconobacter sp. NBRC3259 produced 54.7 g/l of GA as well as 33.7 g/l of dihydroxyacetone (DHA) from 167 g/l of glycerol during 4 d of incubation in a jar fermentor with pH… CONTINUE READING
