The resting cells of Candida sp. SY16 produced a large amount of mannosylerythritol lipid as a biosurfactant when incubated in the distilled water containing only the carbon source. The resting cells exhibited the highest production at 20 g cells per liter on the soybean oil of 75 g/1 as a sole substrate and pH 4∼5 in the shaking culture. Under the optimal conditions, the biosurfactant was extracellularly produced to 58 g/1 after 120 h in jar fermentor, and the yield became higher than that obtained by using the glowing cells of the strain in batch fermentation.
