Abstract

A recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae producing hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) exhibited growth-assciated product formation. By controlling the medium feed rate, based on the calculated amount of medium required for 1 h, a constant specific growth rate was obtained in the range of 1.12-0.18 h-1. In order to prolong the exponential growth phase, the medium feed rate was increased exponentially. A fedbatch cultivation method based on the production kinetics of batch culture enhanced HBsAg production ten times more than in batch culture. The reason for the increase can be explained by the fact that the production of HBsAg is expressed as an exponential function of time when the specific growth rate is controlled to a constant value in growth-associated product fromation kinetics. In the scale-up of this culture to 91, the specific growth rate could also be maintained constant and the HBsAg production trend was similar to that in a 1-l culture. However, ethanol accumulation occurred at a late stage in fed-bach culture. Ethanol produced was not reutilized and inhibited further cell growth.
