Table 6 Comparison of lipid and biomass yield of recombinant Y. lipolytica grown on glucose and cellulose (C/N ratio ≈ 30:1) in aerobic fed-batch cultivations in bioreactors for 5 days

From: Developing cellulolytic Yarrowia lipolytica as a platform for the production of valuable products in consolidated bioprocessing of cellulose

  YX/S (g DCW/g) YFAME/S (g/g) YFAME/X (g/g DCW) PFAME (g/L/h)
Glucose (200 g/L) 0.22 0.10 0.43 0.18
Glucose (50 g/L) + cellulose (50 g/L)a 0.22 0.05 0.22 0.04
  1. aYields were calculated from the consumption of glucose deduced from cellulose degradation
