Yeasts from Lesotho: their classification and possible applications
(University of the Free State, 2004-11)
In view of the decline of natural habitats due to urban and industrial development, the need to search for new yeasts is pressing since few natural habitats have been thoroughly investigated for yeast species. Yeasts have ...
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 ...
The effect of dietary conjugated linoleic acid supplementation on production efficiency and meat quality of pigs
(University of the Free State, 2014-01)
The objectives of this study were to determine the effects of a commercial dietary CLA feed supplement on the production and meat quality parameters of pigs under commercial production conditions. It included the study of ...
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 effect of dietary conjugated linoleic acid supplementation on the physicochemical, nutritional and sensory qualities of pork
(University of the Free State, 2014-05-27)
English: Forty eight gilts were fed one of four dietary treatments containing 0, 0.25, 0.5 and 1% CLA, until their weight reached 95 kg and were then slaughtered. There were a lack of significant differences in pig performance ...
The production of 3-hydroxy fatty acids by the yeast Dipodascopsis uninucleata and its implications
(University of the Free State, 1999-11)
English: In 1991, a novel eicosanoid namely 3-hydroxy-5, 8, 11, 14-eicosatetraenoic acid (3-HETE) was uncovered in the yeast Dipodascopsis uninucleata by van Dyk and co-workers. Strikingly, the production of this compound ...
