Control of ethanol production by yeast: Pyruvate accumulation in slow ethanol producing Saccharomyces cerevisiae


Yeasts are known to differ widely in the rate of ethanol production (Rose, 1976). Recently, we have reported the identification of slow and fast fermenting yeast strains and some major differences in the level of some key enzymes (Sharma and Tauro, 1968a). It was found that a fast ethanolproducing yeast strain has higher levels of pyruvate 0ecartx)xylase… (More)
