AIMS The yeast strain Tetrapisispora phaffii DBVPG 6706 (formerly Kluyveromyces phaffii) secretes a killer toxin (Kpkt) that has antimicrobial activity against apiculate yeasts. The aim of this study was to evaluate the killer activity of Kpkt towards Hanseniaspora uvarum under winemaking conditions. METHODS AND RESULTS The zymocidial activity of Kpkt on H. uvarum was assayed in microfermentation trials inoculated with free and immobilized T. phaffii cells. The microbial evolution and… CONTINUE READING
