The flor strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae form a flor on the surface of wine after alcoholic fermentation. High hydrophobicity of the cell surface is suggested to be important for flor formation by the flor wine yeasts. However, the molecular mechanism of flor formation is not clear. We found that expression of C-terminal deleted NRG1 lacking its two C2H2 zinc finger motifs (NRG1(1-470)) on the multicopy plasmid conferred the ability to form a flor to a non-flor laboratory strain. The cell… CONTINUE READING
