Abstract

Three elicitor fractions including spent culture medium, hydrolyzed mycelial pellet, and hydrolyzed mycelial biomass supernatant were tested for their ability to induce sesquiterpene formation in freely suspended and immobilized cells. Immobilization enhanced the effectiveness of the hydrolysate elicitors, but not that derived from spent culture medium. When effectiveness of the elicitors is compared based on product yield, spent culture medium is shown to be far more effective than hydrolysates as an elicitor.
