a molecular transporter engineering approach to improving xylose catabolism in saccharomyces cerevisiae.traditional metabolic pathway engineering rarely considers the influence of molecular transport. here, we describe the directed evolution of two heterologous transporters, candida intermedia gxs1 and scheffersomyces stipitis xut3. growth rate on xylose was improved up to 70% by mutant transporter expression. most mutants were found to exhibit vastly improved v(max) values and display an increase in high cell density sugar consumption rates. mixed glucose and xylose fermentations reveal that muta ...201222445945
biocontrol activity of four non- and low-fermenting yeast strains against aspergillus carbonarius and their ability to remove ochratoxin a from grape juice.aspergillus spp. infection of grape may lead to ochratoxin a (ota) contamination in processed beverages such as wine and grape juice. the aim of the current study was to evaluate the biocontrol potential of two non-fermenting (cyberlindnera jadinii 273 and candida friedrichii 778) and two low-fermenting (candida intermedia 235 and lachancea thermotolerans 751) yeast strains against the pathogenic fungus and ota-producer aspergillus carbonarius, and their ability to remove ota from grape juice. t ...201425113045
a mutated xylose reductase increases bioethanol production more than a glucose/xylose facilitator in simultaneous fermentation and co-fermentation of wheat straw.abstract: genetically engineered saccharomyces cerevisiae strains are able to ferment xylose present in lignocellulosic biomass. however, better xylose fermenting strains are required to reach complete xylose uptake in simultaneous saccharification and co-fermentation (sscf) of lignocellulosic hydrolyzates. in the current study, haploid saccharomyces cerevisiae strains expressing a heterologous xylose pathway including either the native xylose reductase (xr) from p. stipitis, a mutated variant o ...201121906329
identification and characterisation of xylanolytic yeasts isolated from decaying wood and sugarcane bagasse in this study, yeasts associated with lignocellulosic materials in brazil, including decaying wood and sugarcane bagasse, were isolated, and their ability to produce xylanolytic enzymes was investigated. a total of 358 yeast isolates were obtained, with 198 strains isolated from decaying wood and 160 strains isolated from decaying sugarcane bagasse samples. seventy-five isolates possessed xylanase activity in solid medium and were identified as belonging to nine species: candida intermedia, c. t ...201424748334
phospholipase and proteinase activities of candida spp. isolates from vulvovaginitis in iran.this study aims to characterize phospholipase and proteinase activities of candida isolates from 82 vulvovaginal candidiasis (vvc) and to study the relationship of these activities with vulvovaginitis.201627544321
