Engineering the robustness of Saccharomyces cerevisiae by introducing bifunctional glutathione synthase gene


Robust, high-yielding Saccharomyces cerevisiae is highly desirable for cost-effective cellulosic ethanol production. In this study, the bifunctional glutathione (GSH) synthetase genes GCSGS at high copy number was integrated into ribosomal DNA of S. cerevisiae by Cre–LoxP system. Threefold higher GSH contents (54.9 μmol/g dry weight) accumulated in the… (More)
