The optimum medium composition for the production of L-tryptophan with Klebsiella pnuemoniae pheA tyrA trpE trpR/pSC 101-trp$^{+}$ and the effect of precusors in the optimum medium were studied. The specific growth rate in the optimum medium was almost the same as that in the basal medium, the former showing 1.01 and the latter 1.07 hr $$^{-1}$, but the produced tryptophan was increased 45% in the optimum medium. The maximum amount of produced tryptophan was 159 mg/l within 14 hours. Tryptophan production was ceased by casamino acid addition over 4 g/l in medium, but cell maSS increased with its addition. Indole and anthranilate as precusors had toxic effect on growth and tryptophan production at experimented concentration range (over 20 mg/l), but L-serine had good effect on tryptophan production, resulting in 175 mg/l tryptophan within 14 hours.
