Table 3 Production and distribution of inulinase in static batch cultures of K. marxianus DMKU 3-1042 in YP medium with 2% various carbon substrates

From: Utilization capability of sucrose, raffinose and inulin and its less-sensitiveness to glucose repression in thermotolerant yeast Kluyveromyces marxianus DMKU 3-1042

  1. a Enzyme activities were measured with sucrose as substrate with samples taken at 6 h from static batch cultures as described in Materials and methods
  2. Values are average from two independent experiments
