Table 3 Productivity and yield of ethanol of recombinant C. glutamicum strains in small-scale reaction

From: Coexistence of the Entner–Doudoroff and Embden–Meyerhof–Parnas pathways enhances glucose consumption of ethanol-producing Corynebacterium glutamicum

Strain Rate (mmol/g-CDW/h)1 Ethanol yield (%)1
Glucose consumption Ethanol productivity
CRZ2e 1.6 ± 0.1 a 2.1 ± 0.1 a 71 ± 2 a
CRZ2e-ED 2.4 ± 0.1 b 4.2 ± 0.2 b 91 ± 2 b
CRZ2e-EDΔpfkA 1.8 ± 0.1 a 3.4 ± 0.1 c 100 ± 1 c
  1. Data obtained from 2-h reactions show the average and the standard deviation from three independent experiments
  2. 1The percentage yield was calculated based on a theoretical maximum (0.51 g ethanol/g glucose consumed). The different letters (a–c) in the same column indicate significant differences between the samples (one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s HSD test, P < 0.05)
