This paper reports on the experimental results for selection of Saccharomyces carlsbergensis CNMN-Y-15 yeast strain with high potential for ergosterol biosynthesis; determination of morpho-cultural and physiologo-biochemical characteristics of this yeast strain; establishment of the effect of low-intensity millimeter waves on ergosterol biosynthesis. Research results contributed to the elaboration of technological flow for obtaining of high yield of ergosterol from yeasts. The significant increasing of ergosterol content is possible due to the utililization of optimized nutritive medium with manganese acetate (0.012 g/L) and glucose (40.0 g/L); the treatment of inoculum with low-intensity millimeter waves for 20-30 minutes.

    Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Saccharomyces carlsbergeneis were studied for their glycogen content. It was found that the highest levels of glycogen accumulation were recorded by Saccharomyces cerevisiae grown on complete medium (Gosh's medium) with high C/N ratio. The highest amount of glycogen...

    Glycolytic oscillations of intact yeast cells of the strain Saccharomyces carlsbergensis were investigated at both the levels of cell populations and of individual cells. Individual cells showed glycolytic oscillations even at very low cell densities (e.g. 1.0x105 cells/ml). By contrast, the...

    Background: The predominant sterol in the membranes of the alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is ergosterol, which is commonly found in the membranes of fungi, but is rarely found in higher plants. Higher plants and fungi synthesize sterols by different pathways, with plants producing cycloartenol...
