Abstract: An increase in the molar growth yield (Yxn = 14.3-20.3 g/mol) on glucose (25 mM) was achieved after the transition of Zymomonas mobilis ATCC 29191 from anaerobic to aerobic steady state growth at dilution rates of D = 0.31-0.40 l/h and under oxygen-unlimited conditions.The transfer of anaerobically or aerobically grown steady state cells into a fresh medium resulted in the higher values of YWS. A positive correlation was established between biomass and acetaldehyde yield within the range of 5-9 mM acetaldehyd…
