Pichia insulana sp. nov., a novel cactophilic yeast from the Caribbean.

A novel species of ascomycetous yeast, Pichia insulana sp. nov., is described from necrotic tissue of columnar cacti on Caribbean islands. P. insulana is closely related to and phenotypically very

Genetic diversity of Dekkera bruxellensis yeasts isolated from Australian wineries.

In this study, amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis was conducted on 244 Dekkera bruxellensis isolates from red wine made in 31 winemaking regions of Australia, indicating there were eight genotypes among the isolates, and three of these were commonly found across multiple winemmaking regions.

Adhesion Properties, Biofilm Forming Potential, and Susceptibility to Disinfectants of Contaminant Wine Yeasts

Yeast species showed different resistance to sanitizers, with peracetic acid being the most effective and active at low concentrations, with minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values ranging from 0.08% (v/v) to 1% ( v/v).

Production of l-lactic acid by the yeast Candida sonorensis expressing heterologous bacterial and fungal lactate dehydrogenases

An organism without previous record of genetic engineering to produce L-lactic acid to a high concentration is developed, introducing a novel host for the production of an industrially important metabolite, and opening the way for exploiting C. sonorensis in additional biotechnological applications.

A Newsletter for Persons Interested in Yeast

This poster presents a probabilistic study of the phytochemical properties of fruit juice and its applications in the context of food processing and animal welfare.

Temporal and Geographic Patterns in Yeast Distribution

This chapter provides examples of the larger-scale distribution of yeasts in the environment, including endemism, latitudinal gradients, distance-decay relationships, and Holarctic and bipolar distributions.

Yeast Biogeography and the Effects of Species Recognition Approaches: The Case Study of Widespread Basidiomycetous Species from Birch Forests in Russia

A collection of yeast fungi isolated from spatially remote birch forests in the Moscow Region and Western Siberia is revised with molecular typing and identification tools and revealed three different types of distribution: variability that depends on geographical factors, genetic identity irrespectively of the region of isolation and high degree of genetic variability that did not correlate with region of sampling.

Yeast communities in Sphagnum phyllosphere along the temperature-moisture ecocline in the boreal forest-swamp ecosystem and description of Candida sphagnicola sp. nov.

This study confirmed the low occurrence of tremellaceous yeasts in the Sphagnum phyllosphere and isolated and identified by molecular methods a total of 15 species of yeasts, some of which were differentiated from hitherto known species in physiological tests and phylogenetic analyses.



Analysis of population structure of cactophilic yeast from the genus Pichia: P. cactophila and P. norvegensis.

Differences in the cactophilic yeast communities from southern and northern Florida are identified, and these results indicate that the differences are detectable at the population levels as well.

The use of anonymous DNA markers in assessing worldwide relatedness in the yeast species Pichia kluyveri Bedford and Kudrjavzev.

A phylogeny of P. kluyveri yeast strains was used to demonstrate the strong influence of geography on the population structure of this yeast, confirm the monophyly of one variety, question the utility of maintaining another variety, and demonstrate that the physiological differences used to separate the varieties did not do so in all cases.

Identification of yeasts by RFLP analysis of the 5.8S rRNA gene and the two ribosomal internal transcribed spacers.

The restriction patterns generated from the region spanning the internal transcribed spacers and the 5.8S rRNA gene were used to identify a total of 132 yeast species belonging to 25 different genera, including teleomorphic and anamorphic ascomycetous and basidiomycETous yeasts.

Identification and phylogeny of ascomycetous yeasts from analysis of nuclear large subunit (26S) ribosomal DNA partial sequences

Divergence in the variable D1/D2 domain of large subunit (26S) ribosomal DNA is generally sufficient to resolve individual species, resulting in the prediction that 55 currently recognized taxa are synonyms of earlier described species.

Systematics of the ascomycetous yeasts assessed from ribosomal RNA sequence divergence

Because of the genetic relationships indicated by sequence analysis, Group 1 taxa are retained in the order Endomycetales, andSchizosaccharomyces is retained inThe SchizosACcharomycets Prillinger et al. ex Kurtzman.

Random amplified polymorphic DNA and restriction enzyme analysis of PCR amplified rDNA in taxonomy: two identification techniques for food-borne yeasts.

The random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) assay and the restriction enzyme analysis of PCR amplified rDNA are compared for the identification of the common spoilage yeasts and the results justify the conclusion that the present typing system can be applied for taxonomical purposes.

Induced chromosome rearrangements and morphologic variation in Candida albicans

A mutant of Candida albicans that switches between colony morphologies at high frequencies in a strain with several genetic markers is isolated and it is found that gross karyotypic and morphological changes are separable processes.

Chromosomal rearrangements associated with morphological mutants provide a means for genetic variation of Candida albicans

The pathogenic yeast Candida albicans spontaneously gave rise to morphological mutants exhibiting more than 20 different types of abnormal colonies, suggesting that the high frequency of chromosomal rearrangements provides a means for genetic variation in this organism.

Non-radioactive dot-blot DNA reassociation for unequivocal yeast identification.

A novel method, based on non-radioactive dot-blot hybridization of whole genomic DNA, has shown high and reproducible proportionality between the detected signal and the amount of double-stranded DNA effectively present on the membrane.
