Fps1p controls the accumulation and release of the compatible solute glycerol in yeast osmoregulation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that yeast cells control glycerol accumulation in part via a regulated, Fps1p‐mediated export of glyceroled, which seems to be independent of the known yeast osmosensing HOG and PKC signalling pathways. Expand
Wine flavor and aroma
TLDR
This review aims to present an overview of the formation of wine flavor and aroma-active components, including the varietal precursor molecules present in grapes and the chemical compounds produced during alcoholic fermentation by yeast, including compounds directly related to ethanol production or secondary metabolites. Expand
Thermomyces lanuginosus: properties of strains and their hemicellulases.
TLDR
The ability of T. lanuginosus to produce high levels of cellulase-free thermostable xylanase has made the fungus an attractive source of thermostably xylan enzyme with potential as a bleach-boosting agent in the pulp and paper industry and as an additive in the baking industry. Expand
Purification and partial characterization of an aldo-keto reductase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
A cytosolic aldo-keto reductase was purified from Saccharomyces cerevisiae ATCC 26602 to homogeneity and revealed that the enzyme is closely related to the aldose reductases of xylose-fermenting yeasts and mammalian tissues. Expand
Glycerol production by microbial fermentation: a review.
TLDR
Improvements have been made in the glycerol production using osmotolerant yeasts on a commercial scale in China in recent years and a carrier distillation technique with a Glycerol distillation efficiency greater than 90% has been developed. Expand
Metabolic Control Analysis of Glycerol Synthesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
A kinetic model of the glycerol synthesis pathway has been constructed and indicates that the best strategy to increase flux through the pathway is not to increase enzyme activity, substrate concentration, or coenzyme concentration alone but to increase all of these parameters in conjunction with each other. Expand
Production and properties of hemicellulases by a Thermomyces lanuginosus strain
TLDR
The results suggest that the most suitable conditions for hydrolysis of hemicellulose by these enzymes would be at 50 °C and pH’6·0. Expand
Comparative analysis of environmental DNA extraction and purification methods from different humic acid‐rich soils
TLDR
The objective is to establish a rapid, improved soil environmental DNA extraction and purification protocol that can be applied in the field of agriculture and sustainable agriculture. Expand
Esterases of xylan-degrading microorganisms: production, properties, and significance.
TLDR
The nature of substrates on which acetyl xylan esterase, feruloyl, and p-coumaroyl esterases are active and their role in xylan hydrolysis is emphasized and their significance to applied microbiology is discussed. Expand
Biochemistry and physiology of xylose fermentation by yeasts
TLDR
The redox imbalance in the initial conversion of xylose to xylulose, sensitivity to high concentraions of ethanol, differences in the respiratory pathway and sensitivity to microbial inhibitors, have been identified as major factors limiting ethanol fermentation by the xylOSE-fermenting yeasts.
