Many microorganisms can use a single organic compound to supply both carbon and energy needs. Others need a variable number of additional organic compounds as nutrients. These additional organic nutrients are called growth factors and have a purely biosynthetic function, being required as precursors of certain organic cell constituents that the organism is unable to synthesize. Most microorganisms that depend on organic carbon sources also require CO2 as a nutrient in very small amounts [1]. 9 g/l.

An outstanding example of cell suspension culture in a pilot scale bioreactor (750 1) was the production of shikonins by Mitui Petrochemical Industries. In all these examples, various technologies have been used to improve the productivity of the metabolites. The technologies include: (i) selection of a high yielding cell strain, (ii) screening of the optimum culture condition for metabolite production, (iii) addition of precursor metabolites, (iv) immobilized cell culture, and (v) differentiated tissue and/or organ culture.

During catabolism, glucose, as an example, is converted to carbon dioxide, water and energy. Enzymes catalyze the conversion from complex to simpler sugars. Three major interrelated pathways control carbohydrate metabolism: À The Embden-Meyerhof pathway (EMP) À The Krebs or tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA) À The pentose-phosphate pathway (PPP) In the EMP, glucose is anaerobically converted to pyruvic acid and on to either ethanol or lactic acid. From pyruvic acid it may also enter the oxidative TCA pathway.
