Optimization of carbon and nitrogen sources of submerged culture process for the production of mycelial biomass and exopolysaccharides by Trametes versicolor

Medicinal mushrooms have profound health-promoting benefits. Polysaccharides constitute an important percentage of fungal biomass, where the hyphal wall frequently contains more than 75% of polysaccharide. Trametes versicolor is a medicinal fungus producing exopolysaccharides (EPS). The media were tested with different carbon and nitrogen sources which maximize the production of EPS by T. versicolor. The media were...

Substrate utilization and inhibition kinetics: Batch degradation of phenol by indigenous monoculture of Pseudomonas aeruginosa

The biodegradation potential of an indigenous monoculture of Pseudomonas aeruginosa was studied in batch fermentation using synthetic phenol in water in the concentration range of (100 - 500) mg/L as a model limiting substrate. The effect of initial phenol concentration on the degradation process was investigated. Phenol was completely degraded at different cultivation times for various initial phenol concentrations....
