Method Shake-flask cultivation,Chemostat cultivation,The maximum respiratory capacity of culture samples was measured polarographically with a Clark type oxygen electrode (Yellow Springs Instruments Inc., Yellow Springs, Ohio, USA) at 30 degrees C.
Comments Upon aeration of a previously anaerobic chemostat culture, the maximum respiratory capacity increased from 10 to 70 µmole oxygen/g dry weight/min within 10 h.
