Oenococcus oeni is the main responsible agent for malolactic fermentation in wine, an unpredictable and erratic process in winemaking. To address this, we have constructed and exhaustively curated the first genome-scale metabolic model of Oenococcus oeni, comprising 660 reactions, 536 metabolites and 454 genes. In silico experiments revealed that nutritional requirements are predicted with an accuracy of 93%, while 14 amino acids were found to be essential for the growth of this bacterial… Expand
Mapping the Physiological Response of Oenococcus oeni to Ethanol Stress Using an Extended Genome-Scale Metabolic Model
TLDR
An insight is provided into how ethanol content exerts a differential physiological response in O. oeni PSU-1 strain, and cysteine shows the fastest specific consumption rate among the amino acids, confirming its key role for bacterial survival under ethanol stress. Expand
Oenococcus oeni Exopolysaccharide Biosynthesis, a Tool to Improve Malolactic Starter Performance
TLDR
It is shown that exopolysaccharides specific production rates were increased in the presence of single stressors relevant to wine (pH, ethanol) and the transcription of the associated genes was investigated in distinct O. oeni strains. Expand
Genome-scale metabolic modeling of Acetobacter pasteurianus 386B reveals its metabolic adaptation to cocoa fermentation conditions.
TLDR

Constraint-based modeling in microbial food biotechnology
TLDR
CBM can become a powerful tool for guiding the areas of strain development, culture development and process optimization in the production of food cultures, and in order to make the correct choice of the modeling framework for a particular application and to interpret model predictions in a biologically meaningful manner, one should be aware of the current limitations of CBM.
