In the beginning there was yeast, and it raised bread, brewed beer, and made wine. After many not days but centuries and even millenia later, it was named Saccharomyces cerevisiae. After more years and centuries there was ...
Microbial Terroir in Chilean Valleys: Diversity of Non-conventional Yeast
(Frontiers Media, 2016)
In this study, the presence of non-conventional yeast associated with vineyards located between latitudes 30 degrees S and 36 degrees S was examined, including the valleys of Limari, Casablanca, Maipo, Colchagua, Maule, ...
Isolation and molecular identification of wine yeasts from a Brazilian vineyard
Traditional winemaking is carried out by spontaneous yeasts from the vineyard that persist throughout the alcoholic fermentation. This study examined the diversity of yeast species isolated from grape skin and musts of two ...
Performance of wild non-conventional yeasts in fermentation of wort based on different malt extracts to select novel starters for low-alcohol beers
Nowadays, the increasing interest in new market demand for alcoholic beverages has stimulated the research on useful strategies to reduce the ethanol content in beer. In this context, the use of non-Saccharomyces yeasts ...
Protective yeasts control V. anguillarum pathogenicity and modulate the innate immune response of challenged zebrafish (Danio rerio) larvae
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2016)
© 2016 Caruffo, Navarrete, Salgado, Faúndez, Gajardo, Feijóo, Reyes-Jara, García and Navarrete. We investigated mechanisms involved in the protection of zebrafish (Danio rerio) larvae by two probiotic candidate yeasts, ...
Probiotic yeasts and vibrio anguillarum infection modify the microbiome of zebrafish larvae
(Frontiers Media, 2021)
The host microbiome plays an essential role in health and disease. Microbiome modification by pathogens or probiotics has been poorly explored especially in the case of probiotic yeasts. Next-generation sequencing currently ...
Antifungal Efficacy during Candida krusei Infection in Non-Conventional Models Correlates with the Yeast In Vitro Susceptibility Profile
The incidence of opportunistic fungal infections has increased in recent decades due to the growing proportion of immunocompromised patients in our society. Candida krusei has been described as a causative agent of ...
Catalytical properties of N-glycosylated Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus levansucrase produced in yeast
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2004)
Identification of Candida species in the clinical laboratory: A review of conventional, commercial, and molecular techniques
In healthy individuals, Candida species are considered commensal yeasts of the oral cavity. However, these microorganisms can also act as opportunist pathogens, particularly the so-called non-albicans Candida species that ...
Indirect fluorescent test for detection of anti-Paracoccidioides brasiliensis antibodies using coated bentonite particles as antigen
An indirect fluorescent test was developed for detecting antibodies to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis using bentonite particles as antigen (Bent-IF). The bentonite particles were coated with P. brasiliensis polysaccharide ...
