Abstract

Cyclohexanone monooxygenase was produced from Acinetobacter calcoaceticus grown on a medium containing both glutamate (30 g l(-1)) and cyclohexanol (1 g l(-1)). Productivity was increased to 650 U l(-1), an order of magnitude greater than previous production methods, thereby enhancing the potential commercial utility of this enzyme.
