In order to improve the productivity of invertase by recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing SUC2 gene, the effect of amino acids and dissolved oxygen concentration on the gene expression was investigated. Optimal concentrations of leucine and histidine for cell growth and cloned gene expression were 0.03 gig and 0.04 gig, respectively, expressed as the ratio of amino acid/glucose. The lack or excess of leucine and histidine has inhibitory effect on cell growth and invertase expression. In batch culture, the less aeration was, the higher invertase activity was. In continuous culture at a dilution rate of 0.09 h 1 with controlled dissolved oxygen tension, invertase activity increased dramatically at DOT levels below 5% air saturation, and a maximum activity of 215.54 KUlg cell was obtained under unaerated condition.
