Title
Strain improvement and statistical media optimization for enhanced erythritol production with minimal by-products from Candida magnoliae mutant R23
Abstract

Mutants of Candida magnoliae NCIM 3470 were generated by ultra-violet and chemical mutagenesis to enhance erythritol production. The mutants were screened for higher reductase activity on agar plates containing high concentration of glucose and 2,3,5-triphenyl tetrazolium chloride (TTC). One of the mutants named as R23 gave maximum erythritol production, 60.3 g L−1, compared to 14 g L−1 of the parent strain. Glucose and yeast extract were identified as critical medium components which decide the ratio of polyols produced, mainly erythritol, mannitol and glycerol. In order to enhance the production of erythritol and to minimize the production of mannitol and glycerol, a four component-five level-three response central-composite-rotatable-design (CCRD) of response surface methodology (RSM) model was used. The optimum medium composition for erythritol production was found to contain (g L−1) glucose 238, yeast extract 9.2, KH2PO4, 5.16 and MgSO4 0.23. Moreover, erythritol production was studied in a 10 L fermentor in batch and fed-batch mode using RSM optimized medium. In fed-batch fermentation, 87.8 g L−1 erythritol was produced with 31.1% yield, without formation of any other polyols. Thus present study involving strain improvement followed by media and process optimization resulted in 6.2-fold increase in erythritol production and 3.4-fold increase in the yield.

► Strain improvement of Candida magnoliae by random mutagenesis resulted in a mutant with improved erythritol production. ► Medium optimization for C. magnoliae mutant R23 by RSM. ► Glucose and yeast extract concentrations decide the production of erythritol as well as other by-products such as mannitol and glycerol. ► RSM was successfully used for minimizing by-products formation. ► Fermentative production of erythritol using RSM optimized media was studied in batch and fed-batch mode in 10 L laboratory fermentor.
