…Yes, it can
The filamentous ascomycete fungus Aspergillus niger is a real workhorse in fermentation: biotechnologists love it because it is not only highly productive, but also reliably releases a wide variety of metabolic products into its liquid environment. Only its long, filamentous mycelia sometimes make life difficult for bioprocess engineers.
At BRAIN Zwingenberg, we are currently working on developing a 70 kDa microbial protein in such a way that it can be used as food. We then want to produce this protein using Aspergillus niger as the producing host.
By the way, we are looking for partners from industry who are interested in such large-scale protein production...
