Why, when, and how did yeast evolve alcoholic fermentation?

Why, when, and how did yeast evolve alcoholic fermentation?


The special phenotypic trait of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to perform alcoholic fermentation even in the presence of oxygen involves complex regulation, generally referred to as the Crabtree effect. In a mini-review in this issue of FEMS Yeast Research Piskur and colleagues review how this phenotypic trait evolved, and it summarizes very well much of the work Piskur and others have been doing in this exciting research field over the last 10 years.

Melanin production by Trichosporon spp.


Melanin production by Trichosporon spp.This work shows for the first time melanin production in the genus Trichosporon, which may impact infections caused by these emergent yeasts.
