Selection of thermotolerant yeast strains for simultaneous saccharification and fermentation of cellulose.


A total of 58 yeast strains from 12 genera were assayed for their ability to grow and ferment carbohydrates in standard Durham tube test at 40, 43, and 46 degrees C. Based on the kinetic parameters for glucose fermentation in shaken flask cultures, the strain Fabospora fragilis CCY51-1-1 was chosen for further studies. It reached about 56.0 and 35.0 g… (More)
