      A target strain that first appeared was selected from three colonies formed in MMXDOG medium and named FSC1, as a fusant between S. cerevisiae M2 and C. intermedia m Brilliant Green staining and SEM observation confirmed that the FSC1 strain produced spores in KAc medium (Figure 2b, d and f).. Colony formations of FSC1, M2 and m11 strains were investigated in YMG, YMFDOG . To enable pentose utilization, the pathway for xylose and/or arabinose metabolism needs to be transferred into these microbes. Saccharomyces cerevisiae is commonly used for the production of ethanol from renewable resources. However, strains of S. cerevisiae presently used in bioethanol.

Metab Eng. , 14 (6): /   In mixed sugar fermentations with recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains able to ferment D-xylose and L-arabinose the pentose sugars are normally only utilized after depletion of D-glucose. This has been attributed to competitive inhibition of pentose uptake by D-glucose as pentose sugars are taken up into yeast cells by individual members of the yeast hexose transporter family.

      Importantly, research has been unable to experimentally identify the highly efficient pentose transport system of P. stipitis, even though it is the source organism for many pentose metabolic ically, a P. stipitis genomic DNA library transformed into a transporter-null strain of S. cerevisiae yielded no transformants able to grow on xylose [].   Rational construction of xylose isomerase-based strains. In this study, we sought to develop a S. cerevisiae strain with improved xylose catabolic rates and yields using the xylose isomerase pathway. To this end, we first established a genomic integration of the xylose isomerase pathway in S. cerevisiae by expressing a mutant xylose isomerase, xylA3*, developed by our group [].

THE NATURE OF THE PENTOSE PHOSPHATE PATHWAY IN STRAINS OF SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE INTRODUCTION In recent years much interest has been focused on the nature of catabolic pathways functioning in biological systems.

These studies have been concerned with the identification of pathway mechanisms, estimation of relative participation of concurrent pathways, and.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae does not naturally metabolize xylose, but recombinant S. cerevisiae strains containing the xylose reductase and xylitol dehydrogenase genes from Pichia stipitis are able to metabolize xylose via the pentose phosphate pathway [Walfridsson95].

Changes in the levels of enzymes in the pentose phosphate pathway effect the. Enhancing xylose utilization has been a major focus in Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain-engineering efforts. The incentive for these studies arises from Cited by:   In this work, a robust industrial strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was modified by the addition of essential genes for pentose metabolism.

Subsequently, taken through cycles of Cited by:   The pentose sugar xylose is a major constituent of lignocellulose. Saccharomyces cerevisiae cannot use xylose, instead converting it primarily to xylitol with only a small fraction going into biomass or ethanol (44, 45).Recombinant xylose-metabolizing S.

cerevisiae strains contain genes from the xylose-utilizing yeast Pichia stipitis coding enzymes for the first two steps in xylose conversion Cited by:   Other strains than the often-used D strain were also reported unable to grow on dicarboxylic acids, for example Rodriguez and Thornton 29 reported the inability of S.

Yeast. At the glucose 6-phosphate (G6P) node, 25% of the carbon influx was diverted towards the pentose phosphate pathway under normal growth conditions, while only % of the carbon flux was diverted towards the pentose phosphate pathway during growth at 1 M NaCl, indicating that cell growth is arrested under hyperosmotic conditions.

For the glucose/acetate shift in chemostat cultures, 3 of the 6 omitted genes belong to pentose phosphate pathway (rki1, sol34, zwf1). The other three are from different pathways, lsc12 from TCA cycle, fba1 and adh from glycolytic pathway.

The pentose phosphate pathway was blocked either by disruption of the GND1 gene, one of the isogenes of 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, or by disruption of the ZWF1 gene, which encodes glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase.

Decreasing the phosphoglucose isomerase activity by 90% also lowered the pentose phosphate pathway flux. Data from the radiorespirometric experiments indicated that both strains of S. cerevisiae catabolized glucose by way of the EMPTCA and the PP pathway although relative participation of these two pathways were different.

The pentose phosphate pathway is playing a much more important role in strain 2 of the bakers' yeast. In S. cerevisiae and many other fungi and euglenoids, L-lysine is produced via the α-aminoadipate pathway (Fig. 1), whereas bacteria, plants and some lower fungi use the diaminopimelate pathway 3.

Ethanolic fermentation of lignocellulosic biomass is a sustainable option for the production of bioethanol. This process would greatly benefit from recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains also able to ferment, besides the hexose sugar fraction, the pentose sugars, arabinose and xylose.

Different pathways can be introduced in S. cerevisiae to provide arabinose and xylose utilisation. Jeppsson M, Johansson B, Hahn-Hägerdal B, Gorwa-Grauslund MF: Reduced oxidative pentose phosphate pathway flux in recombinant xylose-utilizing Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains improves the ethanol yield from xylose.

Appl Environ Microbiol. /AEM A substantial metabolic engineering effort has been directed towards development of strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae capable of fermenting both the hexoses (mainly D-glucose) and pentoses (mainly D-xylose and L-arabinose) present in lignocellulose hydrolysates [1–5].The repertoire of substrates utilized by S.

cerevisiae in wild-type form does not include either pentose. The basic heterologous pathway was introduced into S. cerevisiae (resulting in strain ST), then, using an Orbitrap Fusion Mass Spectrometer and authentic analytical standards, successful production of psilocybin, as well as the pathway intermediate tryptamine, and the spontaneous degradation product psilocin was confirmed in micro-titer.

Ergothioneine (EGT) has a unique antioxidant ability and diverse beneficial effects on human health. But the content of EGT is very low in its natural producing organisms such as Mycobacterium smegmatis and mushrooms. Therefore, it is necessary to highly efficient heterologous production of EGT in food-grade yeasts such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Global climate change caused by the emission of anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHGs) is a grand challenge to humanity. To alleviate the trend, the consumption of fossil fuels needs to be largely reduced and alternative energy technologies capable of controlling GHG emissions are anticipated.

In this study, we introduced a synthetic reductive pentose phosphate pathway (rPPP) into a xylose. The non-oxidative pentose phosphate pathway controls the fermentation rate of xylulose but not of xylose in Saccharomyces cerevisiae TMB FEMS Yeast Res.

Beyond pathway engineering, the metabolic state of the production host is critical in maintaining the efficiency of cellular production. The biotechnologically important yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae adjusts its energy metabolism based on the availability of oxygen and carbon sources.
