Los sustratos a ensayar con el API 20[grados]C AUX[R] fueron: glucosa, glicerol, 2-ceto-D-gluconato, L-arabinosa, D-xilosa, adonitol, xilitol, galactosa, inositol, sorbitol, [alfa]-metil-D-glucosido, N-acetil-D-glucosamina, celobiosa, lactosa, maltosa, sacarosa, trehalosa, melezitosa y rafinosa.
The sugars included: D-Xylose, L-Rhamnose, Sucrose, Lactose, Melibiose, Raffinose, Melezitose, Glycerol, Adonitol, Sorbitol and Mannitol.
For example, the lyophilization and rehydration of Lactobacillus plantarum and Pediococcus pentosaceus cells immobilized within calcium alginate beads resulted in higher survival rates when researchers incorporated glycerol or adonitol with skim milk as a cryoprotectant.
