Activity of xylose reductase from Candida mogii grown in media containing different concentrations of rice straw hydrolysate

Xylose reductase (XR) activity was evaluated in extracts of Candida mogii grown in media containing different concentrations of rice straw hydrolysate. Results of X Ractivity were compared to xylitol production and a similar behavior was observed for these parameters. Highest values of specific production and productivity were found for xylose reductase (35 U/g of cell and 0.97 U/[g of cell·h], respectively) and for xylitol (5.63 g/g of cell and 0.13 g/[g of cell·h]) in fermentation conducted in medium containing 49.2 g of xylose/L. The maximum value of XR:XD ratio (1.82) was also calculated under this initial xylose concentration with 60 h of fermentation.
