Lactobacillus reuteri was immobilized on silica gel to evaluate the bioconversion of linoleic acid (LA) into conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), consisting of cis-9,trans-11 and trans-10,cis-12 isomers. The amount of cell to carrier, the reaction time, and the substrate concentration, pH, and temperature for CLA production were optimized at 10 mg of cells/(g of carrier), 1 h, 500 mg/L LA, 10.5, and 55 degrees C, respectively. In the presence of 1.0 mM Cu(2+), CLA production increased by 110%. Under the optimal conditions, the immobilized cells produced 175 mg/L CLA from 500 mg/L LA for 1 h with a productivity of 175 mg/(L.h) and accumulated 5.5 times more CLA than that obtained from bioconversion by free washed cells. The CLA-producing ability of reused cells was investigated over five reuse reactions and was maximal at pH 7.5, 25 degrees C, and 1.0 mM Cu(2+). The total amount of CLA by the combined five reuse reactions was 344 mg of CLA/L reaction volume. This was 8.6 times higher than the amount obtained from reuse reactions by free washed cells.
