Chemically defined media for cultivation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains are commonly supplemented with a mixture of multiple Class-B vitamins, whose omission leads to strongly reduced growth rates. Fast growth without vitamin supplementation is interesting for industrial applications, as it reduces costs and complexity of medium...

In anaerobic Saccharomyces cerevisiae cultures, NADH (reduced form of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide)-cofactor balancing by glycerol formation constrains ethanol yields. Introduction of an acetate-to-ethanol reduction pathway based on heterologous acetylating acetaldehyde dehydrogenase (A-ALD) can replace glycerol formation as 'redox-sink'...

Glycerol is the major organic byproduct of industrial ethanol production with the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Improved ethanol yields have been achieved with engineered S. cerevisiae strains in which heterologous pathways replace glycerol formation as the predominant mechanism for anaerobic re-oxidation of surplus NADH generated in...

Background: Anaerobic Saccharomyces cerevisiae cultures require glycerol formation to re-oxidize NADH formed in biosynthetic processes. Introduction of the Calvin-cycle enzymes phosphoribulokinase (PRK) and ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO) has been shown to couple re-oxidation of biosynthetic NADH to ethanol...

Product yield on carbohydrate feedstocks is a key performance indicator for industrial ethanol production with the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This paper reviews pathway engineering strategies for improving ethanol yield on glucose and/or sucrose in anaerobic cultures of this yeast by altering the ratio of ethanol production, yeast growth...

Background: Saccharomyces cerevisiae is intensively used for industrial ethanol production. Its native fermentation pathway enables a maximum product yield of 2 mol of ethanol per mole of glucose. Based on conservation laws, supply of additional electrons could support even higher ethanol yields. However, this option is disallowed by the...

Analysis of predicted fungal proteomes revealed a large family of sequences that showed similarity to the Saccharomyces cerevisiae Class-I dihydroorotate dehydrogenase Ura1, which supports synthesis of pyrimidines under aerobic and anaerobic conditions. However, expression of codon-optimised representatives of this gene family, from the...

While thermotolerance is an attractive trait for yeasts used in industrial ethanol production, oxygen requirements of known thermotolerant species are incompatible with process requirements. Analysis of oxygen-sufficient and oxygen-limited chemostat cultures of the facultatively fermentative, thermotolerant species Ogataea parapolymorpha...

Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported errors in the text of the Results section and in Table 2. It refers to a mutation in a yeast gene as VPS1<sup>I410L</sup> and to the corresponding change in the Vps1 amino-acid sequence as I410L. The correct descriptions should read VPS1<sup>I401L</sup> and I401L,...

All known facultatively fermentative yeasts require molecular oxygen for growth. Only in a small number of yeast species, these requirements can be circumvented by supplementation of known anaerobic growth factors such as nicotinate, sterols and unsaturated fatty acids. Biosynthetic oxygen requirements of yeasts are typically small and,...

Neocallimastigomycetes are unique examples of strictly anaerobic eukaryotes. This study investigates how these anaerobic fungi bypass reactions involved in synthesis of pyridine nucleotide cofactors and coenzyme A that, in canonical fungal pathways, require molecular oxygen. Analysis of Neocallimastigomycetes proteomes identified a candidate...

Engineered strains of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae are intensively studied as production platforms for aromatic compounds such as hydroxycinnamic acids, stilbenoids and flavonoids. Heterologous pathways for production of these compounds use L-phenylalanine and/or L-tyrosine, generated by the yeast shikimate pathway, as aromatic...

Biosynthesis of sterols, which are key constituents of canonical eukaryotic membranes, requiresmolecular oxygen. Anaerobic protists and deep-branching anaerobic fungi are the only eukaryotes in which a mechanism for sterol-independent growth has been elucidated. In these organisms, tetrahymanol, formed through oxygen-independent cyclization...

An oxygen requirement for de novo biotin synthesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae precludes the application of biotin-prototrophic strains in anoxic processes that use biotin-free media. To overcome this issue, this study explores introduction of the oxygen-independent Escherichia coli biotin-biosynthesis pathway in S. cerevisiae. Implementation...

Current large-scale, anaerobic industrial processes for ethanol production from renewable carbohydrates predominantly rely on the mesophilic yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Use of thermotolerant, facultatively fermentative yeasts such as Kluyveromyces marxianus could confer significant economic benefits. However, in contrast to S. cerevisiae,...

Background: In most fungi, quinone-dependent Class-II dihydroorotate dehydrogenases (DHODs) are essential for pyrimidine biosynthesis. Coupling of these Class-II DHODHs to mitochondrial respiration makes their in vivo activity dependent on oxygen availability. Saccharomyces cerevisiae and closely related yeast species harbor a cytosolic Class...

This study explores the relation between biomass-specific succinic acid (SA) production rate and specific growth rate of an engineered industrial strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, with the aim to investigate the extent to which growth and product formation can be uncoupled.

Metabolic capabilities of cells are not only defined by their repertoire of enzymes and metabolites, but also by availability of enzyme cofactors. The molybdenum cofactor (Moco) is widespread among eukaryotes but absent from the industrial yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. No less than 50 Moco-dependent enzymes covering over 30 catalytic...

Chemically defined media for yeast cultivation (CDMY) were developed to support fast growth, experimental reproducibility, and quantitative analysis of growth rates and biomass yields. In addition to mineral salts and a carbon substrate, popular CDMYs contain seven to nine B-group vitamins, which are either enzyme cofactors or precursors for...

Acetogens have the ability to fixate carbon during fermentation by employing the Wood-Ljungdahl pathway (WLP), which is highly conserved across Bacteria and Archaea. In a previous study, product stoichometries in galacturonate-limited, anaerobic enrichment cultures of “Candidatus Galacturonibacter soehngenii,” from a novel genus within the...
