Three strains were isolated from hydrocarbon-polluted alpine habitats and were representatives of Cryptococcus terreus (strain PB4) and Rhodotorula creatinivora (strains PB7, PB12). All three strains synthesized and accumulated glycogen (both acid- and alkali-soluble) and trehalose during growth in complex medium containing glucose as carbon source and in(More)
The effects of dehydration/rehydration on two strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae: S600, a metabolically engineered xylose-utilising strain, and H158, the non-xylose-utilising host strain; and on the naturally xylose-utilising yeast Pachysolen tannophilus CBS 4044, were compared after glucose and xylose utilisation respectively. The yeast strains differed(More)
It has been shown that dehydration markedly affects the activity of a number of enzymes connected with energy metabolism in the yeastSaccharomyces cerevisiae. Independently of the drying method used, there was found to be an inverse relationship between the activity of mitochondrial enzymes — NADH-dehydrogenase (EC 1.6.2.1), succinate dehydrogenase (EC(More)
Addition to the nutrient medium of the extracts of camomile, nettle, mint, or Saint-John's-wort to a concentration of 0.5-4% was established to activate the yeast growth. The maximum effect was recorded on the addition of the extracts to the poor "water" medium. The extracts of camomile and Saint-John's-wort were shown to inhibit the alcohol dehydrogenase(More)
The work deals with the effect of carbon sources, presence of protein synthesis inhibitors (cycloheximide and chloramphenicol) and dehydration regime on the enzyme activity of the dried yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The yeast grown on molasses and dried by aeration demonstrated a notable increase of the NADH-dehydrogenase and succinate dehydrogenase(More)
The effect of cultivation and dehydration conditions on the adenosine phosphate content of yeast cells has been studied. Irrespective of the cultivation conditions the total pool of adenosine phosphates was found to increase, mainly due to accumulation of ATP, during the exponential phase of cell growth and to decrease during transition of the culture into(More)
