Sham-sensitive terminal oxidase gene from xylose-fermenting yeast
Shi, N.Q. | Jeffries, T.W.
Disclosed is a SHAM-sensitive terminal oxidase (STO) gene from the xylose-fermenting yeast Pichia stipitis. Also disclosed is a mutant of Pichia stipitis in which the STO gene natively present in the wild-type yeast was disrupted. Mutants of Pichia stipitis having reduced expression of PsSTO were found to exhibit enhanced fermentation of xylose to ethanol.Show more [+] Less [-]
