Growth of Geotrichum candidum and Penicillium camembertii in liquid media in relation with the consumption of carbon and nitrogen sources and the release of ammonia and carbon dioxide



Growth of Geotrichum candidum and Penicillium camembertii in liquid media in relation with the consumption of carbon and nitrogen sources and the release of ammonia and carbon dioxide



Enzyme and Microbial Technology 31(4): 533-542



The growth of the filamentous fungi Geotrichum candidum and Penicillium camembertii on peptones as a sole carbon and nitrogen source, and in the presence of a second carbon source, lactic acid, have been compared. On both media, G. candidum exhibited similar kinetics until the end of growth, since it preferentially metabolized peptones as a carbon source, and lactic acid only for cellular maintenance during stationary phase. Growth of G. candidum was then nitrogen limited (peptones).
