Abstract

Rice oil significantly affected cephalosporin C production in a 2.5-l bioreactor culture of Cephalosporium acremonium M25. To improve cephalosporin C production, the feed conditions of rice oil were optimized. Reducing the feed rate of rice oil improved cephalosporin C production to 1.01 g/l when the consumption rate of rice oil decreased. Overall, under optimal feed conditions in the 2.5-l fed-batch culture, cephalosporin C production increased about four times compared to before optimization.
