Influence of oxygen supply in the production of biomass ofE. coli cells immobilized in K-carrageenan gel

  • F. Marin-Iniesta


Cells of a recombinantEscherichia coli, immobilized in K-carrageenan, show improved distribution of growth in the gel when cultured in conditions of high oxygen tension. The production of both biomass and protein codified by recombinant DNA is increased.
