OPTIMIZATION OF SINGLE-CELL-BIOMASS PRODUCTION BY YARROWIA LIPOLYTICA USING RESPONSE SURFACE METHODOLOGY AND PULSE METHOD

ABSTRACT



The medium for fodder yeast production from crude rapeseed oil by the strain Yarrowia lipolytica A-101 was optimized using both the response surface methodology and the pulse method. The 24 central composite experimental design was used to study the combined effect of the medium components, such as crude rapeseed oil, ammonium sulphate, magnesium sulphate and yeast extract, on the biomass concentration and yield. To maximize the concentration of the biomass the optimal values of the medium components were determined with the two methods for the independent variables. Both methods yielded similar results. Thus the optimized concentrations of the medium components amounted to 25.7; 4.2; 0.12; 0.28 and 2.1 gL-1 for crude rapeseed oil, ammonium sulphate, magnesium sulphate, potassium dihydrogen phosphate and yeast extract, respectively.

Key words: medium optimization, rapeseed oil, Yarrowia lipolytica.
