the assessment of epiphytic yeast diversity in sugarcane phyllosphere in thailand by culture-independent method.the diversity of epiphytic yeasts from sugarcane (saccharum officinarum linn.) phyllospheres in thailand was investigated by culture-independent method based on the analysis of the d1/d2 domains of the large subunit rrna gene sequences. forty-five samples of sugarcane leaf were collected randomly from ten provinces in thailand. a total of 1342 clones were obtained from 45 clone libraries. 426 clones (31.7 %) were closely related to yeast strains in the genbank database, and they were clustered i ...201526615738
yeast diversity and novel yeast d1/d2 sequences from corn phylloplane obtained by a culture-independent approach.culture-independent techniques have recently been used for evaluation of microbial diversity in the environment since it addresses the problem of unculturable microorganisms. in this study, the diversity of epiphytic yeasts from corn (zea mays linn.) phylloplanes in thailand was investigated using this technique and sequence-based analysis of the d1/d2 domains of the large subunit ribosomal dna sequences. thirty-seven samples of corn leaf were collected randomly from 10 provinces. the dna was ex ...201627578202
purification and characterization of an extracellular β-xylosidase from pseudozyma hubeiensis ncim 3574 (phxyl), an unexplored yeast.this paper reports on the production of β-xylosidase from an unexplored yeast, pseudozyma hubeinsis. the expression of this enzyme could be induced by beech wood xylan when the yeast was grown at 27 °c. the enzyme was purified to homogeneity as a glycoprotein with 23 % glycosylation. the purification protocol involved ammonium sulphate precipitation, qae-sephadex a50 ion exchange chromatography and sephacryl-200 column chromatography which resulted in 8.3-fold purification with 53.12 % final rec ...201627637943
lipid production through simultaneous utilization of glucose, xylose, and l-arabinose by pseudozyma hubeiensis: a comparative screening of glucose, xylose and l-arabinose from lignocellulosic biomass by an oleaginous yeast is anticipated as a method for biodiesel production. however, most yeasts ferment glucose first before consuming pentoses, due to glucose repression. this preferential utilization results in delayed fermentation time and lower productivity. therefore, co-fermentation of lignocellulosic sugars could achieve cost-effective conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to microbial lipid. comprehensive sc ...201627566647
