Extracellular enzymatic activity profiles in yeast and yeast‐like strains isolated from tropical environments
TLDR
This screening survey could constitute the first approach in selecting yeast strains of environmental origin potentially exploitable as enzyme producers in tropical environments of the Brazilian rain forest.
Psychrophilic yeasts from worldwide glacial habitats: diversity, adaptation strategies and biotechnological potential.
TLDR
An overview of the distribution and adaptation strategies of psychrophilic yeasts worldwide and attention is focused on their biotechnological potential, especially on their exploitation as a source of cold-active enzymes and for bioremediation purposes.
Psychrophilic yeasts in glacial environments of Alpine glaciers.
TLDR
The presence of psychrophilic yeasts in supra- and subglacial sediments, ice and meltwater collected from two glaciers of the Italian Alps was investigated and a significant proportion of isolated yeasts exhibited one or more extracellular enzymatic activities at 4 degrees C.
Production of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by yeasts isolated from the ascocarps of black (Tuber melanosporum Vitt.) and white (Tuber magnatum Pico) truffles
TLDR
Since some molecules produced by the isolates of this study are also characteristic of truffle complex aroma, it is possible to hypothesize a complementary role of yeasts associated with this ecosystem in contributing to final Tuber spp.
First large-scale isolation of Prototheca zopfii from milk produced by dairy herds in Italy
TLDR
This study showed that 4.7% of samples possessed cells of Prototheca spp.
Extracellular enzymatic activities of basidiomycetous yeasts isolated from glacial and subglacial waters of northwest Patagonia (Argentina).
TLDR
Findings suggest that cold environments of Patagonia (Argentina) may be considered a potential source of cold-adapted yeasts producing industrially relevant cold-active enzymes.
Carotenoid profiles of yeasts belonging to the genera Rhodotorula, Rhodosporidium, Sporobolomyces, and Sporidiobolus.
TLDR
Significant correlation coefficients may suggest that species belonging to the genera Rhodosporidium, Sporobolomyces, and Sporidiobolus possess a carotenoid biosynthetic pathway analogous to that elsewhere postulated for Rhodotorula species.
Psychrophilic yeasts from Antarctica and European glaciers: description of Glaciozyma gen. nov., Glaciozyma martinii sp. nov. and Glaciozyma watsonii sp. nov.
TLDR
The description of Glaciozyma genus and the re-classification of L. antarcticum reduce the polyphyletic nature of the genus Leucosporidium.
