Microbial conversion of glycerol into functional bio-based materials was investigated, aiming to facilitate the utilization of waste glycerol. A basidiomycete yeast, Pseudozyma antarctica JCM 10317, efficiently produced mannosylerythritol lipids (MELs) as glycolipid biosurfactants from glycerol. The amount of MEL yield reached 16.3 g l(-1) by intermittent feeding of glycerol. 
Production of Glycolipid Biosurfactants, Mannosylerythritol Lipids, Using Sucrose by Fungal and Yeast Strains, and Their Interfacial Properties
TLDR
The sucrose-derived MELs showed excellent interfacial properties: low critical micelle concentration as well as that of oil-derivedMELs. Expand
Isolation and Screening of Glycolipid Biosurfactant Producers from Sugarcane
TLDR
Forty-three fungal producers for glycolipid biosurfactants, mannosylerythritol lipids, were isolated from leaves and smuts of sugarcane plants and taxonomically categorized into the genera Pseudozyma and Ustilago on the basis of partial sequences of the ribosomal RNA gene. Expand
Production of Glycolipid Biosurfactants, Mannosylerythritol Lipids, by a Smut Fungus, Ustilago scitaminea NBRC 32730
TLDR
A smut fungus Ustilago scitaminea NBRC 32730 on sugar cane (Saccharum) was found to accumulate a large amount of glycolipids in the culture medium, which was identified as MEL-B, 4-O-β-(2′,3′-di-o-alka(e)noyl-6′- O-acetyl-D-mannopyranosyl)-erythritol. Expand

Production and Characterization of a Glycolipid Biosurfactant, Mannosylerythritol Lipid B, from Sugarcane Juice by Ustilago scitaminea NBRC 32730
TLDR
Sugarcane juice is likely to be effective in glycolipid production by U. scitaminea NBRC 32730, and should facilitate the application of MELs, and showed a ceramide-like skin-care property in a three-dimensional cultured human skin model. Expand
Conversion of cellulosic materials into glycolipid biosurfactants, mannosylerythritol lipids, by Pseudozyma spp. under SHF and SSF processes
TLDR
The use of inexpensive lignocellulosic substrates associated to straightforward downstream processing from sugary broths is expected to have a great impact in the economy of MEL production for the biosurfactant market, inasmuch as low enzyme dosage is sufficient for good systems performance. Expand
Production of glycolipid biosurfactants, mannosylerythritol lipids, from pentoses and d-glucose/d-xylose mixtures by Pseudozyma yeast strains
TLDR
The pentose-assimilating capacity of yeasts from the genus Pseudozyma was exploited towards the production of mannosylerythritol lipids (MEL), a glycolipid with biosurfactant properties that increased sugar consumption rate and, when accompanied by d -glucose or d -xylose feeding, additional biomass production.
