Abstract Of the 13 strains of Bacillus subtilis tested for the coproduction of the lipopeptide surfactin and the antifungal lipopeptides of the iturin family, only 1 produced both lipopeptides with a high yield. The cultures were made in a synthetic medium. Several L-amino acids and various carbon sources were good substrates for the lipopeptide production. The maximum yield of surfactin was about 110 mg/liter and that of iturin A about 39 mg/liter/absorbance unit for the best strain, B. subtilis S 499.
