Abstract in Portuguese
Neisseria lactamica está envolvida na aquisição da imunidade natural contra Neisseria meningitidis, causadora da doença meningocócica. Vesículas de membrana externa (OMV) de N. lactamica são antígenos potenciais contra N. meningitidis. Analisou-se a cinética de biomassa, de produção de OMV, da fonte de carbono (lactato), e dos metabólitos, para maximizar a produção de OMV. Realizaram-se ensaios em biorreator, em batelada simples, batelada alimentada com lactato, com ou sem pulsos de aminoácidos e extrato de levedura (YE). Utilizou-se o meio de Catlin (MC) como meio mínimo, e analisaram-se efeitos das concentrações do lactato, aminoácidos e YE. Lactato foi consumido e citrato e acetato produzidos. Os melhores resultados obtidos foram no meio com adição de 2 g/L de YE e concentrações dobradas de lactato e 5 aminoácidos constitutivos do MC, em batelada alimentada com pulsos. O lactato apresentou efeito positivo sobre o rendimento de OMV e o YE sobre a biomassa. Os 5 aminoácidos constitutivos do MC foram necessários para obtenção de biomassa e rendimento de OMV.

Abstract in English
Neisseria lactamica is involved with the acquisition of natural immunity to Neisseria meningitidis. N. lactamica outer membrane vesicles (OMV) are potential antigens against N. meningitidis, the pathogen of meningococcal disease. The objective of this work was to analyze the kinetics of bacterial growth, OMV production, the carbon source (lactate), and products of metabolism, to improve growing conditions and OMV production. Groups were studied in batch process, fed-batch process with lactate, fed-batch process with pulses of amino acids and YE. MC was considered as minimal medium and it was analyzed the effect of lactate, amino acids and YE. Lactate was consumed and citrate and acetate increased in the medium. The best results were in fed-batch with pulses, in MC with the double concentrations of lactate and amino acids, added with 2 g/L of YE. The lactate had a positive effect over OMV yield and YE had a positive effect over biomass. 5 amino acids of MC were necessary to obtain biomass and OMV yield.
