Abstract: Amino acids are critical to life and it is important for nutritive, medicinal and cosmetic purpose. Fermentation technology played crucial role in production of different amino acids as well as different products. Strains of Pseudomonas have major role in degradation of natural as well as complex compounds. Different strains were isolated from Pune Agriculture University in which Pseudomonas boreopolis MD-4 was selected for amino acid production. Different media and fermentation technique were used for amino acids production. Pseudomonas boreopolis MD-4 gave more amount of specific amino acid production in mostly natural condition i.e. high amount of alanine obtained in solid state fermentation, high amount of different amino acids were obtained in semi-synthetic media and synthetic media produced more variability of amino acids but little amount of amino acids. This organism produced amino acids in more amounts in solid state fermentation and high variability in agitated batch fermentation.
Keywords: Pseudomonas boreopolis MD-4, solid state fermentation, submerged fermentation, agitated batch fermentation, amino acid production
