Table 1 Growth of L. crispatus L1 in shake flasks on SDM medium supplemented with different carbon sources

From: Lactobacillus crispatus L1: high cell density cultivation and exopolysaccharide structure characterization to highlight potentially beneficial effects against vaginal pathogens

Substrate (20 g · l−1) Cell dry weight (g · l−1) μ8h(h−1) Lactic acid (g · l−1) Yx/s(g · g−1) Yp/s(g · g−1)
Glucose 1.61 0.34 8.82 0.15 0.83
Sucrose 1.51 0.46 13.10 0.13 0.68
Lactose 1.35 0.24 8.00 0.15 0.89
Trehalose 1.50 0.43 9.21 0.12 0.74
Fructose 1.51 0.34 7.50 0.18 0.78
Dextrins 1.61 0.31 11.0 n.d. n.d.
  1. The concentration of biomass and lactic acid were measured in the broth after 24 h of growth. Yx/s indicates g of dry biomass produced per g of substrate; Yp/s indicates g of lactic acid produced per g of substrate; μ8h indicates the specific growth rate in h−1 calculated in the first 8 h of growth. Values are an average of 3 different experiments with standard deviations ≤ 5%.
