Time course of macroscopic yields
during A. niger idiophase.
- Citric acid (Yp/s), CO2 (Yco2/s)
and Biomass (Yx/s) substrate yields. Values from Röhr
et al. (1987).
Polyol (Ypolyol/s) and Oxygen (Yo2/s)
substrate yields. The substrate-polyol yields were determined by carbon
balance among the cellular input (glucose) and outputs (citric acid, biomass
and CO2). The negative values are indicative of net polyol consumption.
The oxygen-substate yields was calculated by reductance grade balance among
the all compounds interchanged between the cell and the medium. In all these
calculations an average polyol composition [CH2.54O]3.72
