Abstract

A mutant strain, Aspergillus niger AB1801 showed decrease and then disappearance of aconitase activity during citric acid fermentation when supplemented with peddy soak liquor, corn steep liquor and peptone. Extracts of malt, wheat and rice bran, defatted soybean and beef showed increase in enzyme activity but decreased acid production. Cell mass did not change appreciably.
