BACKGROUND A key pathway for ester biosynthesis in yeast is the condensation of an alcohol with acetyl-CoA by alcohol-O-acetyltransferase (AATase). This pathway is also prevalent in fruit, producing short and medium chain volatile esters during ripening. In this work, a series of six AATases from Saccharomyces and non-Saccharomyces yeasts as well as tomato… CONTINUE READING
