Association of Saccharomyces bayanus var. uvarum with some French wines: genetic analysis of yeast populations

Naumov GI, Masneuf I, Naumova ES, Aigle M, Dubourdieu D Res Microbiol. 2000 Oct;151(8):683–91 Using genetic hybridization analysis, electrophoretic karyotyping and PCR-RFLP of the MET2 gene, we found that the yeast Saccharomycesbayanus var. uvarum is associated with certain types of wines produced in the Val de Loire, Sauternes, and Jurancon regions. The average frequency of … Continue reading Association of Saccharomyces bayanus var. uvarum with some French wines: genetic analysis of yeast populations



Characterization of natural hybrids of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Saccharomyces bayanus var. uvarum

Le Jeune C, Lollier M, Demuyter C, Erny C, Legras J-L, Aigle M, Masneuf-Pomarède I FEMS Yeast Res. 2007 Jun;7(4):540–9 Nine yeast strains were isolated from spontaneous fermentations in the Alsace area of France, during the 1997, 1998 and 1999 grape harvests. Strains were characterized by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) of … Continue reading Characterization of natural hybrids of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Saccharomyces bayanus var. uvarum



Reassessment of phenotypic traits for Saccharomyces bayanus var. uvarum wine yeast strains

Masneuf-Pomarède I, Bely M, Marullo P, Lonvaud-Funel A, Dubourdieu D Int J Food Microbiol. 2010 Apr 30;139(1-2):79–86 Among Saccharomyces yeast, S. cerevisiae and S. bayanus var. uvarum are related species, sharing the same ecosystem in sympatry. The physiological and technological properties of a large collection of genetically-identified S. bayanus var. uvarum wine strains were investigated … Continue reading Reassessment of phenotypic traits for Saccharomyces bayanus var. uvarum wine yeast strains



Genetic diversity study of the yeast Saccharomyces bayanus var. uvarum reveals introgressed subtelomeric Saccharomyces cerevisiae genes

Naumova ES, Naumov GI, Michailova YV, Martynenko NN, Masneuf-Pomarède I Res Microbiol. 2011 Feb;162(2):204–13 Intraspecies polymorphism of the yeast Saccharomyces bayanus var. uvarum was studied using the polymerase chain reaction with a microsatellite primer (GTG)(5). Sixty-nine strains of different origins were analyzed. There existed a correlation between PCR patterns of the strains and the source … Continue reading Genetic diversity study of the yeast Saccharomyces bayanus var. uvarum reveals introgressed subtelomeric Saccharomyces cerevisiae genes
