Figure 1

Fermentation using Escherichia coli KO11, Zymomonas mobilis mobilis AX101 and Saccharomyces cerevisiae 424A(LNH-ST) in 2% w/v corn steep liquor with (A) glucose as sole carbon source, (B) glucose and xylose mixture ratio 7:3 and (C) xylose as sole carbon source. Fermentation was conducted in the fleaker fermentor under largely anaerobic condition and initiated cell density equivalent to 0.5 units OD600 nm. Temperature and pH were controlled at 37°C, 6.8 for KO11 and 30°C, 5.5 for AX101 and 424A(LNH-ST).
