Influence of culture conditions on the biosynthesis of Schwanniomyces castellii phytase

Summary

The influence of several factors on the biosynthesis of Schwanniomyces costellii phytase was studied in continuous culture. The level of phytase production increased with pH and dilution rate. It decreased when the phytic acid or phosphate content increased.
