A basidiomycete yeast, Pseudozyma antarctica JCM 10317, efficiently produced mannosylerythritol lipids (MELs) as glycolipid biosurfactants from glycerol, and the amount of MEL yield reached 16.3 g l(-1) by intermittent feeding of Glycerol.
Surface active properties and antimicrobial activities of mannosylerythritol lipids as biosurfactants produced by Candida antarctica
Microbial Production of Glyceric Acid, an Organic Acid That Can Be Mass Produced from Glycerol
A method for the efficient biotechnological production of GA as a target compound for new surplus glycerol applications in the biodiesel and oleochemical industries is developed and suggests that mADH is involved in GA production by acetic acid bacteria.
Extracellular Accumulation of Mannosylerythritol Lipids by a Strain of Candida antarctica
A yeast strain, isolated from the exudate of a tree, accumulated biosurfactants abundantly when grown on soybean oil as the sole carbon source. The biosurfactants were found to be a mixture of 4…
Genome Sequence of the Basidiomycetous Yeast Pseudozyma antarctica T-34, a Producer of the Glycolipid Biosurfactants Mannosylerythritol Lipids
The genome sequence of Pseudozyma antarctica T-34 was determined and annotated to provide insights into the properties of this yeast that make it superior for use in the production of functional glycolipids, leading to the further development of P. antarctic for industrial applications.

Microbial conversion of n-alkanes into glycolipid biosurfactants, mannosylerythritol lipids, by Pseudozyma (Candida antarctica)
n-Alkanes ranging from C12 to C18 were converted into glycolipid biosurfactants, mannosylerythritol lipids (MEL), by resting cells of Pseudozyma (Candida) antarctica T-34, with highest yield from 6% of n-octadecane after 7 days reaction.

The enantiomeric composition of the produced GA was d-glyceric acid (d-GA), and the productivity of d-GA was enhanced with the addition of both 15% (v/v) glycerol and 20 g/l yeast extract.

It was discovered that the G. oxydans mutant ΔadhA, in which the membrane-bound alcohol dehydrogenase-encoding gene (adhA) was disrupted, significantly improved its ability to grow in a higher concentration of glycerol and to produce DHA compared to a wild-type strain.
