Phenotypic diversity of Flo protein family-mediated adhesion in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome encodes a Flo (flocculin) adhesin family responsible for cell-cell and cell-surface adherence. In commonly used laboratory strains, these FLO genes areExpand
Brettanomyces yeasts--From spoilage organisms to valuable contributors to industrial fermentations.
Ever since the introduction of controlled fermentation processes, alcoholic fermentations and Saccharomyces cerevisiae starter cultures proved to be a match made in heaven. The ability of S.Expand
Aging characteristics of different beer types
Eight commercial beers (3 lager beers, 2 dark ales and 3 high-alcoholic ales) were aged for one year under normal storage conditions, and the changes with time of flavour profile and theExpand
Screening and evaluation of the glucoside hydrolase activity in Saccharomyces and Brettanomyces brewing yeasts
Aims:  The aim of this study was to select and examine Saccharomyces and Brettanomyces brewing yeasts for hydrolase activity towards glycosidically bound volatile compounds.
Flocculation gene variability in industrial brewer’s yeast strains
The brewer’s yeast genome encodes a ‘Flo’ flocculin family responsible for flocculation. Controlled floc formation or flocculation at the end of fermentation is of great importance in the brewingExpand
Evaluation of the glycoside hydrolase activity of a Brettanomyces strain on glycosides from sour cherry (Prunus cerasus L.) used in the production of special fruit beers.
The glycoside hydrolase activity of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Brettanomyces custersii was examined on sour cherry (Prunus cerasus L.) glycosides with bound volatile compounds. Refermentations byExpand
The influence of microgravity on invasive growth in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
This study investigates the effects of microgravity on colony growth and the morphological transition from single cells to short invasive filaments in the model eukaryotic organism SaccharomycesExpand
Molecular Mechanism of Flocculation Self-Recognition in Yeast and Its Role in Mating and Survival
ABSTRACT We studied the flocculation mechanism at the molecular level by determining the atomic structures of N-Flo1p and N-Lg-Flo1p in complex with their ligands. We show that they have similarExpand
Application of Non-Saccharomyces Yeasts Isolated from Kombucha in the Production of Alcohol-Free Beer
Alcohol-free beer (AFB) is no longer just a niche product in the beer market. For brewers, this product category offers economic benefits in the form of a growing market and often a lower tax burdenExpand
