TitleConversion of L-lactate into n-caproate by a continuously fed reactor microbiome
Study TypeOther
Abstract Conversion of lactate to n-caproate had been described for the type strain Megasphaera elsdenii in batch systems. Recently, investigators have also described production of n-caproate from endogenous or exogenous lactate with batch-fed reactor microbiomes. However, no reports exist of lactate to n-ca .. [more]
