Tyramine and Phenylethylamine Biosynthesis by Food Bacteria
These rapid and simple methods could be used for the analysis of the ability to form tyramine by bacteria in order to evaluate the potential risk of tyramsine biosynthesis in food products. Expand
The need for transparency and good practices in the qPCR literature
Two surveys of over 1,700 publications whose authors use quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) reveal a lack of transparent and comprehensive reporting of essential technical information. ReportingExpand
Multilocus sequence typing of oenological Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains.
Phylogenetic relationships among the strains analyzed, inferred by MLST data, showed wine isolates of S. cerevisiae as a rather homogeneous group and the discrimination potential of mitochondrial RFLP analysis was superior to the MLST scheme used in this work. Expand
Transgenic wine yeast technology comes of age: is it time for transgenic wine?
Development of genetically engineered wine yeasts, their potential application, and factors affecting their commercial viability will be discussed in this review. Expand
Deletion of BCY1 from the Saccharomyces cerevisiae Genome Is Semidominant and Induces Autolytic Phenotypes Suitable for Improvement of Sparkling Wines
It is proposed that deletion of the 3′ end of the open reading frame of a single copy of BCY1 is a way to improve the quality of sparkling wines. Expand
Chiral analysis of amino acids from conventional and transgenic yeasts.
It is corroborated that the genetic modification brings a faster autolysis of the yeast, releasing a higher amount of L-amino acids to the medium in a short time. Expand
A new methodology to obtain wine yeast strains overproducing mannoproteins.
A new methodology to isolate and characterize wine yeast that overproduce mannoproteins is proposed, based on the resistance of the killer 9 toxin produced by Williopsis saturnus. Expand
Complete assembly of the Leishmania donovani (HU3 strain) genome and transcriptome annotation
The complete genome assembly and the availability of the gene models (including annotation of untranslated regions) are important pieces to understand how differential gene expression occurs in this pathogen, and to decipher phenotypic peculiarities like tissue tropism, clinical disease, and drug susceptibility.
