Effect of biocatalyst and 1,3PDO concentrations on
specific initial oxidation rate by G.
a Effect of biocatalyst
concentration (mg/mL) on specific initial 1,3PDO (10 mg/mL)
conversion rate (µg/mgCDW.min) using
resting cells of G. oxydans.
b Specific initial reaction
rates of ADH (filled diamond)
and ALDH (filled square)
calculated from the data collected after 3 h during
biotransformation of 1,3PDO using resting cells of G. oxydans. Asterisk indicates a significant difference
between the marked data points. The data for the first substrate
concentration (5 mg/ml) was ignored from Fig. 3b since the reaction was
marginal after 2 h
