Table 3 Mucic acid production from poly-d-galacturonic acid or pectin by marine Coniochaeta sp. MF729 transformants

From: Engineering marine fungi for conversion of d-galacturonic acid to mucic acid

Strain C1 C2
d-Glucose + pectin
 Mucic acid (g L−1) 5.3 ± 0.6a 4.2 ± 0.1a
 Conversion mucic acid/available d-galacturonic acid (g g−1) 0.40 0.33
d-Glucose + poly-d-galacturonate
 Mucic acid (g L−1) 2.7 ± 0.2a 1.2 ± 0.1b
 Conversion mucic acid/available d-galacturonic acid (g g−1) 0.23 0.10
  1. Coniochaeta sp. MF729 transformants were grown in 24-well plates using poly-d-galacturonic acid or pectin as substrate with d-glucose as co-substrate. Values are mean ± standard error of the mean for n = 3 biological replicates. Values for mucic acid concentration in the same row with the same superscript letter (a or b) did not differ significantly (p > 0.05)
