Candida shehatae carbon metabolic pathways were correlated with fermentative activity under different growth conditions. Reduced nicotine adenine dinucleotide (NADPH) is the coenzyme preferred for xylose reductase by C. shehatae under in vitro anoxic cell culture conditions. To prevent a redox imbalance derived from intracellular accumulation of NADH in the(More)
Relevant production of xylitol by Debaryomyces hansenii requires semiaerobic conditions since in aerobic conditions the accumulated reduced adenine dinucleotide coenzyme is fully reoxidized leading to the conversion of xylitol into xylulose. For oxygen transfer coefficient values from 0.24 to 1.88 min-1, in shake flasks experiments, biomass formation(More)
