The activities of xylitol dehydrogenase and xylose reductase in the yeasts Candida shehatae, C. didensiae, C. intermediae, C. tropicalis, Kluyveromyces marxianus, Pichia stipitis, P. guillermondii, Pachysolen tannophilus, and Torulopsis molishiama were studied at different oxygen transfer rates (OTRs) to the fermentation medium (0, 5, and 140 mmol O2/(l h)). The activities of these enzymes were maximum in the yeasts P. stipitis and C. shehatae. The xylitol dehydrogenase of all the yeasts was… CONTINUE READING
