During anaerobic fermentation, Saccharomyces cerevisiae releases large amounts of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) and related ethyl esters which are very important for aromatic quality of fermented beverages. The physiological function of ester synthesis is not yet understood. As MCFAs are toxic, their conversion to esters has been proposed to be a detoxification mechanism. Esterases possess ester synthesizing ability. Throughout an anaerobic fermentation of a lipid-free synthetic medium… Expand
Production and biological function of volatile esters in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
The current hypotheses of ester synthesis in yeast in relation to the complex regulation of the alcohol acetyl transferases and the different factors that allow ester formation to be controlled during fermentation are reviewed. Expand
Fine tuning of medium chain fatty acids levels increases fruity ester production during alcoholic fermentation.
TLDR
Pearson correlation analysis revealed that higher alcohols and fatty acids played a more important role in fruity ester production than enzymes; Particularly, the correlation coefficient between fatty acids and MFEs was 0.940. Expand
Esters and their biosynthesis in fermented dairy products: a review
Abstract Esters of short-chain fatty acids are aroma-impact compounds found in fermented dairy products. These esters are responsible for fruity flavours that can be regarded either as a defect or asExpand
Biosynthesis of acetate esters by dominate strains, isolated from Chinese traditional fermented fish (Suan yu).
TLDR
Biosynthesis of acetate esters by Lactobacillus plantarum 120, Staphylococcus xylosus 135 and Saccharomyces cerevisiae 31, isolated from Chinese traditional fermented fish were studied and microbial ester-synthesis activity increased with the increase of aliphatic alcohol carbon number. Expand
Ester synthesis in an aqueous environment by Streptococcus thermophilus and other dairy lactic acid bacteria
TLDR
The ability of Streptococcus thermophilus ST1 and 19 other dairy lactic acid bacteria to synthesize esters was investigated in an aqueous environment through a transferase reaction (alcoholysis) in which fatty acyl groups from glycerides were transferred to alcohols. Expand
The effect of increased yeast alcohol acetyltransferase and esterase activity on the flavour profiles of wine and distillates
TLDR
Prospects for the development of wine yeast starter strains with optimized ester‐producing capability that could assist winemakers in their effort to consistently produce wine and distillates such as brandy to definable flavour specifications and styles are offered. Expand
Lipid nutrition of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in winemaking.
TLDR
An investigation of the nutritional role of exogenous lipids from inactivated yeast cells (IYCs) was carried out in a nitrogen-rich synthetic medium similar to grape juice with glucose and fructose as carbon sources, without lipid sources, and in anaerobiosis. Expand
Pre-fermentative supplementation of fatty acids alters the metabolic activity of wine yeasts.
TLDR
The data clearly suggest that pre-fermentative supplementation of different fatty acids indeed influenced the growth and metabolism of wine yeasts in a different way, and attention needs to be paid not only to the wine yeast strain used during the winemaking but also to the overall grape juice composition, including fatty acids, to obtain the desired wine characteristics. Expand
The yeast enzyme Eht1 is an octanoyl-CoA:ethanol acyltransferase that also functions as a thioesterase
TLDR
Low‐resolution structural data and site‐directed mutagenesis provide experimental support for a predicted α/β‐hydrolase domain featuring a Ser–Asp–His catalytic triad and the S. cerevisiae gene YBR177C/EHT1 should be reannotated as coding for an octanoyl‐CoA:ethanol acyltransferase that can also function as a thioesterase. Expand
Effect of oxygen and lipid supplementation on the volatile composition of chemically defined medium and Chardonnay wine fermented with Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the potential of lipid and oxygen supplementation for the manipulation of wine aroma in white wine fermentation and show an additive effect on concentration of higher alcohols whereas oxygen suppressed the enhancing effect of lipids on formation of esters and volatile acids.
