Cloning and Characterization of the xyl1 Gene, Encoding an NADH-Preferring Xylose Reductase from Candida parapsilosis, and Its Functional Expression in Candida tropicalis
ABSTRACT Xylose reductase (XR) is a key enzyme in d-xylose metabolism, catalyzing the reduction of d-xylose to xylitol. An NADH-preferring XR was purified to homogeneity from Candida parapsilosisExpand

Improvement of xylitol production by controlling oxygen supply in Candida parapsilosis
Abstract Fermentor experiments were carried in which the oxygen transfer coefficient (kLa) was varied in order to examine quantitatively the effect of oxygen on xylitol production. When the kLa wasExpand
