The acid-resistant fungus Scytalidium acidophilum A T C C 26774 was cultivated in submerged fermentation in hydrolysates of Sphagnum peat moss produced with H2S04, HCl, H N 0 3 and H 3 P 0 , acids. Hydrolysis with H2S04 produced the highest concentration of total carbohydrates and reducing sugars in the hydrolysates. However, when Scytalidium acidophilum ATCC 26774 was grown in undiluted hydrolysates, the H @ , medium produced the best mycelial growth. The H2S04 medium produced the highest dry biomass concent…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
