Mitochondrial inheritance and fermentative : oxidative balance in hybrids between Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Saccharomyces uvarum

Solieri L, Antúnez O, Pérez-Ortín JE, Barrio E, Giudici P Yeast. 2008 Jul;25(7):485–500 Breeding between Saccharomyces species is a useful tool for obtaining improved wine yeast strains, combining fermentative features of parental species. In this work, 25 artificial Saccharomyces cerevisiae x Saccharomyces uvarum hybrids were constructed by spore conjugation. A multi-locus PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism … Continue reading Mitochondrial inheritance and fermentative : oxidative balance in hybrids between Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Saccharomyces uvarum



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
