Abstract

It was investigated under several cultural conditions to produce biomass directly from starch by an strictly aerobic and amylolytic yeast, Sporobolomyces holsaticus FRI Y-5. Its optimal temperature and initial pH of medium for growth were $23^{\circ}C$ and 6.9, respectively. Activation energy, Ea, for growth was calculated to be 17.33 Kcal/mole from the Arrhenius relationship. When each of 13 nitrogen sources was added to the basal medium, $(NH_2)_2CO$ had the best effect, on which concentration of cell after 3 day incubation was 10.6 g/l and cell yield was 0.451. The yeast growth was affected by $MgSO_4,\;K_2SO_4\;and\;ZnSO_4$ as a mineral source and was best on the medium containing all of them. The addition of yeast extract (5g/l) could enhance the production of biomass and cell yield to 77% and 32%, respectively.
