Lipids and ascospore morphology in yeasts
(University of the Free State, 2004-10)
Some yeasts produce sexual spores (ascospores) in a variety of shapes and surface ornamentations. These intriguing structures have hitherto been used only in yeast classification. In this study the likely primary function ...
The lipid composition of the yeast genus Saccharomycopsis Schiönning
(University of the Free State, 2004-11)
English: In this study, the construction of a forecasting model, using intracellular fatty acid composition as indicator, was attempted to assist in the search for yeasts capable of producing 3-hydroxy oxylipins. In order ...
An isolation procedure for arachidonic acid producing mucoralean fungi
(University of the Free State, 1999-11)
English: Soil plates with malt extract agar and an incubation temperature of 5°C were used to selectively isolate representatives of the genus MorfierelIa from Alti Mountain Grassland soil. Fungi in the soil sample able ...
The role of lipids in the flocculation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(University of the Free State, 2005-11)
English: Although beer production is one of the oldest biotechnologies in the world, a major constraint in brewing remains controlling flocculation. Evidence points towards a possible role of lipids, associated with the ...
