New Biochemical Engineering Study Results from
Our news editors obtained a quote from the research, "The optimum environmental and nutritional conditions for arthroconidial germination in the dark control were estimated as follows: temperature, 26 degrees C; glucose, 20 g/L; soybean peptone, 10 g/L; Mg2+ concentration, 2 mmol/L; and initial pH, 3.5. All the arthroconidia rapidly germinated within 32 h after inoculation under optimal conditions. In the shaking flask, prepared according to the arthroconidial inoculation method, the fermentation period, maximal cell growth rate, and triterpenoid productivity of SmF were 0.6-, 1.7-, and 1.6-fold of those obtained from the culture prepared according to the conventional mycelial inoculation method. Furthermore, efficient fermentation was obtained in a 4000L fermentor, with a biomass of 7.84 +/- 0.20 g/L and a triterpenoid production of 61.21 +/- 2.12 mg/L."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Therefore, the modified inoculation method can be used in engineering applications with several advantages, including simplicity, good controllability, and high efficiency (shorten the operation time of mycelium-based inoculation from >= 240 h to 168 h)."
