AIMS To investigate the conditions that promote the expression of cyanide-resistant respiration (CRR) in the spoilage yeasts Pichia membranifaciens and Debaryomyces hansenii. METHODS AND RESULTS CRR was detected by sensitivity of oxygen consumption to salicylhydroxamic acid. It was absent in both yeasts in the early exponential phase, but was triggered by several stress situations. Starvation under aerobic conditions, decreasing pH or incubation of the culture in a narrow temperature range… CONTINUE READING
