Production of d S-threo-isocitric acid (ICA) by yeast meets serious difficulties since it is accompanied by a simultaneous production of citric acid (CA) in significant amounts that reduces the yield of desired product. In order to develop an effective process of ICA production, 60 yeast strains of different genera (Candida, Pichia, Saccharomyces,(More)
The process of succinic acid (SA) production represents the combination of microbial synthesis of α-ketoglutaric acid from rapeseed oil by yeast Yarrowia lipolytica VKM Y-2412 and subsequent decarboxylation of α-ketoglutaric acid by hydrogen peroxide to SA that leads to the production of 69.0 g l−1 of SA and 1.36 g l−1 of acetic acid. SA was isolated from(More)
The effects of pH, aeration, and temperature on the growth of fungal strain Mortierella alpina LPM-301 and the synthesis of lipids and arachidonic acid in glycerol-containing medium were studied. Arachidonic acid production in the stationary growth phase was found to depend considerably on the pH value; it reached the optimum at pH 6.0 and was irreversibly(More)
The significance of the fatty acid composition and ergosterol content in cells for resistance to cellobiose lipids has been investigated in the cells of mutant Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains that are unable to produce ergosterol or sphingomyelin and in the cells of microorganisms that produce cellobiose lipids. S. cerevisiae mutants were shown to be less(More)
The basic tendency in the field of plant protection concerns with reducing the use of pesticides and their replacement by environmentally acceptable biological preparations. The most promising approach to plant protection is application of microbial metabolites. In the last years, bactericidal, fungicidal, and nematodocidal activities were revealed for(More)
