Many yeasts can aerobically catabolize exogenously supplied glycosides that are hydrolysed in the cytosol, but few do so anaerobically. This is so, even for yeasts that use one or more of the component hexoses anaerobically. The phenomenon, called the Kluyver effect, appears to be brought about by a combination of the following four factors: (i) fast transport of the glycosides into the cells involves proton symport and seems to require aerobiosis, so, under anaerobic conditions, the glycosides… CONTINUE READING
