The kinetics of end-product inhibition of l-lactate production from xylose and glucose by Lactococcus lactis IO-1

The relative contributions of lactate inhibition and the generation of sterile (undividing) cells to the low xylose utilisation rate of Lactococcus lactis IO-1 was investigated. The lactate inhibition constant of xylose grown cells was shown to be 9.3 times more than that of glucose grown cells. However, the sterile cell production rate and LDH inactivation rate of the xylose cultures were at least 10 times less than the glucose cultures. Thus, it is suggested that the slower substrate consumption rate in xylose medium is caused mainly by the large inhibition constant for the end product.
