Project: Oligosaccharide biosynthesis via Acetobacter xylinium cellulosesynthetase.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- Based on cellulosessynthetase activity of Acetobacter xylinium poly as well as oligosaccharides can be produced in vivo and in vitro. Optimization of the fermentation is essential to obtain high levels of cellulosessynthetase. Due to the direct relationship between specific cellgrowth rate and enzyme levels, continuous culture systems are particularly suitable to study cellulosesynthetase.
