Dekkera bruxellensis has been described as the major contaminant yeast of industrial ethanol production, although little is known about its physiology. The aim of this study was to investigate the growth of this yeast in diverse carbon sources and involved conducting shake-flask and glucose- or sucrose-limited chemostats experiments, and from the chemostat data, the stoichiometry of biomass formation during aerobic growth was established. As a result of the shake-flask experiments with hexoses… CONTINUE READING
