Candida utilis CBS 621 andSaccharomyces cerevisiae CBS 8066 were grown in glucose-limited chemostat cultures with formate as an additional energy source. In both yeasts formate was oxidized via a cytoplasmic NAD+-linked formate dehydrogenase. Other formate-oxidizing enzymes could not be detected. WithCandida utilis the steady-state cell yield on glucose increased with increasing amounts of formate in the medium until growth became carbon-limited. The maximum growth yield on glucose in the… CONTINUE READING
