Yeasts that are present in marine environments have evolved to survive hostile environments that are characterized by high exogenous salt content, high concentrations of inhibitory compounds, and low soluble carbon and nitrogen levels. [] Key Method The new method includes a three-cycle enrichment step followed by an isolation step and a confirmation step. Using this method, 116 marine yeast strains were isolated from 14 marine samples collected in the UK, Egypt, and the USA.

Occurrence and Distribution of Strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in China Seas

It was found that most of the strains of S. cerevisiae in marine environments occurred in guts, the surface of marine fish and mangrove trees, in contrast, they were not found in seawater and sediments, and may be related to the harsh marine environments from which they were isolated.

Utilisation of novel marine yeast and seawater-based media for the production of bioethanol

Bioethanol can be considered as one of the best replacements for petrol because of its positive impact on environment and many other advantages. Currently, bioethanol accounts for around 2% of the

The establishment of a marine focused biorefinery for bioethanol production using seawater and a novel marine yeast strain

Investigation of the use of seawater-based media and a novel marine yeast strain ‘Saccharomyces cerevisiae AZ65’ to reduce the water footprint of bioethanol and revealed that marine yeast is a potential candidate for use in theBioethanol industry especially when using seawater or high salt based fermentation media.

Molecular Identification and Biochemical Characterization of Novel Marine Yeast Strains with Potential Application in Industrial Biotechnology

Five strains of marine yeast isolated, molecularly identified and biochemically characterized represent a source of alternative ingredients for food, feed and other sectors and could be classified not only as oleaginous yeasts but also as single cell protein (SCP) and single cell oil (SCO) producers.

Genome Sequence and Analysis of the Flavinogenic Yeast Candida membranifaciens IST 626

This work put forward C. membranifaciens IST 626 as a riboflavin overproducer and provides valuable molecular data for future development of superior producing strains capable of using the wide range of carbon sources, which is a characteristic trait of the species.

Aquatic yeasts: diversity, characteristics and potential health implications.

There has been a rising interest in the levels, diversity and potential impacts of yeasts in aquatic environments, and there is a need to review the literature that also focuses on aquatic environments.

Biodiversity and Enzyme Activity of Marine Fungi with 28 New Records from the Tropical Coastal Ecosystems in Vietnam

Abstract The coastal marine ecosystems of Vietnam are one of the global biodiversity hotspots, but the biodiversity of marine fungi is not well known. To fill this major gap of knowledge, we assessed

Production, purification, characterization, and biological properties of Rhodosporidium paludigenum polysaccharide

Marine red yeast polysaccharide obtained from Rhodosporidium paludigenum improved the lambs’ body weight, antioxidant enzyme activity, and the number of probiotics, but it reduced the feed/gain (F/G) ratio and theNumber of pathogenic bacteria in 60-days-old lambs.

Saccharification of lignocellulosic biomass using seawater and halotolerant cellulase with potential application in second-generation bioethanol production

This study involves marine bacterial strains Bacillus oceanisediminis, Brevibacterium halotolerans, and Psychrobacter celer capable of producing halotoleranceant cellulases, isolated from Gopalpur, Odisha, and utilized for saccharification of pretreated rice straw and the production of reducing sugars.

Collection and identification of marine yeasts

Development of a phenotypic assay for characterisation of ethanologenic yeast strain sensitivity to inhibitors released from lignocellulosic feedstocks

The results demonstrate that the phenotypic microarray assay developed in the current study is a valuable tool that can be used to identify yeast strains with desirable resistance to inhibitory compounds found in lignocellulosic hydrolysates.

Marine yeasts—a review

The distribution of species, as well as their numbers and metabolic characteristics were found to be governed by existing environmental conditions, and yeasts are more abundant in silty muds than in sandy sediments.

Screening of Non- Saccharomyces cerevisiae Strains for Tolerance to Formic Acid in Bioethanol Fermentation

This study investigated the potential for screening formic acid tolerance in non-Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strains, which could be used for the development of advanced generation bioethanol processes, and found S. arboricolus strain 2.3319 displayed a higher formic Acid tolerance when compared to other strains in the study.

Physiologic and metabolic characterization of a new marine isolate (BM39) of Pantoea sp. producing high levels of exopolysaccharide

Strain BM39, probably belonging to a new species, due to its remarkable EPS production, comparable to those of known industrial bacterial producers, could be suggested as a new microorganism for industrial applications.

Novel Yeast Strains from Brazilian Biodiversity: Biotechnological Applications in Lignocellulose Conversion into Biofuels

In this chapter, recent studies performed with novel Brazilian D-xylose- and/or cellobiose-fermenting yeasts are highlighted and the new isolates from the genus Scheffersomyces and Spathaspora represent an important contribution of new species and strains to yeast taxonomy and ecology.
