Evaluating ethanol yields of wine yeast strains under various fermentative conditions
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The market for high quality lower alcohol wines is growing globally. Several factors are responsible for this trend, with socio-economic and health concerns being considered as being the most relevant. ...
Analysis of Saccharomyces cerevisiae deletion mutants displaying a modified carbon flux under wine fermentative conditions
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been used for millennia for the leavening of dough and in the production of alcoholic beverages such as beer and wine. More recently, it is being used as cell factories for the production of ...
Modifying redox potential and its impact on metabolic fluxes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The production of glycerol by Saccharomyces cerevisiae under anaerobic conditions is essential for maintaining the intracellular redox balance thereby allowing continuous energy generation through ...
