Hydrophobic substrate utilisation by the yeast Yarrowia lipolytica, and its potential applications.
The alkane-assimilating yeast Yarrowia lipolytica degrades very efficiently hydrophobic substrates such as n-alkanes, fatty acids, fats and oils for which it has specific metabolic pathways. AnExpand

New disruption cassettes for rapid gene disruption and marker rescue in the yeast Yarrowia lipolytica.
Yarrowia lipolytica is one of the most extensively studied nonconventional yeasts. Unfortunately, few methods for gene disruption have been reported for this yeast, and all of them are time-consumingExpand

Identification and characterisation of LIP7 and LIP8 genes encoding two extracellular triacylglycerol lipases in the yeast Yarrowia lipolytica.
In the lipolytic yeast Yarrowia lipolytica, the LIP2 gene was previously reported to encode an extracellular lipase. The growth of a Deltalip2 strain on triglycerides as sole carbon source suggest anExpand

The lipases from Yarrowia lipolytica: genetics, production, regulation, biochemical characterization and biotechnological applications.
Lipases are serine hydrolases that catalyze in nature the hydrolysis of ester bonds of long chain triacylglycerol into fatty acid and glycerol. However, in favorable thermodynamic conditions, theyExpand

Selection of new over-producing derivatives for the improvement of extracellular lipase production by the non-conventional yeast Yarrowia lipolytica.
The non-conventional yeast Yarrowia lipolytica produces an extracellular lipase encoded by the LIP2 gene. Mutant strains with enhanced productivity were previously obtained either by chemicalExpand

Bacillus-based biological control of plant diseases
Plant diseases cause considerable losses in crop production and storage. Nowadays, growers still rely heavily on chemical pesticides to prevent, or control these diseases. However, the highExpand

Characterization of Amylolysin, a Novel Lantibiotic from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens GA1
Background Lantibiotics are heat-stable peptides characterized by the presence of thioether amino acid lanthionine and methyllanthionine. They are capable to inhibit the growth of Gram-positiveExpand
