Simultaneous production of citric acid and invertase by Yarrowia lipolytica SUC+ transformants.


PMID 21549590

Abstract

Simultaneous production of citric acid (CA) and invertase by Yarrowia lipolytica A-101-B56-5 (SUC(+) clone) growing from sucrose, mixture of glucose and fructose, glucose or glycerol was investigated. Among the tested substrates the highest concentration of CA was reached from glycerol (57.15 g/L) with high yield (Y(CA/S)=0.6g/g). When sucrose was used, comparable amount of CA was secreted (45 g/L) with slightly higher yield (Y(CA/S)=0.643 g/g). In all cultures amount of isocitrate (ICA) was below 2% of total citrates. Considering invertase production, the best carbon source appeared to be sucrose (72380 U/L). The highest yield of CA and invertase biosynthesis calculated for 1g of biomass was obtained for cells growing from glycerol (9.9 g/g and 4325 U/g, respectively). Concentrates of extra- and intracellular invertase of the highest activity were obtained from sucrose as substrate (0.5 and 1.8 × 10(6)U/L, respectively).
