Title (EN) METHODS FOR IMPROVING CELL GROWTH AND ALCOHOL PRODUCTION DURING FERMENTATION
(FR) PROCEDES VISANT A ACCROITRE LA CROISSANCE CELLULAIRE ET LA PRODUCTION D'ALCOOL AU COURS DE LA FERMENTATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention provides compositions and methods for increasing the production of alcohol, e.g., ethanol, from a saccharide source and increasing the growth of ethanologenic cells by exposing ethanologenic cells to a compound. Preferred alcohologenic cells (cells capable of fermenting a carbon source into an alcohol) are selected from the family Enterobacteriaceae, such as, for example, Escherichia or Klebsiella. Furthermore, the methods and compositions of the invention are suitable for use in simultaneous saccharification and fermentation.
(FR)L'invention concerne des compositions et des procédés permettant d'augmenter la production d'alcool, p. ex. de l'éthanol, à partir d'une source de saccharide et d'augmenter la croissance de cellules éthanologènes par l'exposition de ces dernières à un composé. Des cellules éthanologènes préférées (des cellules capables de transformer par fermentation une source de carbone en un alcool) sont sélectionnées dans la famille Enterobacteriaceae, comme par exemple Escherichia ou Klebsiella. Les procédés et les compositions de la présente invention peuvent en outre s'utiliser lors d'une saccharification et d'une fermentation simultanées.
