Modes of lactose uptake in the yeast species Kluyveromyces marxianus

  author={M. Carvalho-Silva and Isabel Spencer-Martins},
  journal={Antonie van Leeuwenhoek},
Twelve lactose-assimilating strains of the yeast species Kluyveromyces marxianus and its varieties marxianus, lactis and bulgaricus were studied with respect to transport mechanisms for lactose, glucose and galactose, fermentation of these sugars and the occurrence of extracellular lactose hydrolysis. The strains fell into three groups. Group I (two strains): Fermentation of lactose, glucose and galactose, extracellular lactose hydrolysis, apparent facilitated diffusion of glucose and galactose… CONTINUE READING
