Utilization of renewable feedstocks for the production of bio-based bulk chemicals, such as 2,3-butanediol (2,3-BDO), by engineered strains of the non-pathogenic yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has recently become an attractive option. In this study, to realize rapid production of 2,3-BDO, a flocculent, 2,3-BDO-producing S. cerevisiae strain YPH499/dPdAdG/BDN6-10/FLO1 was constructed from a previously developed 2,3-BDO-producing strain. Continuous 2,3-BDO fermentation was carried out by the flocculent strain in an airlift bioreactor. The strain consumed more than 90 g/L of glucose, which corresponded to 90% of the input, and stably produced more than 30 g/L of 2,3-BDO over 380 h. The maximum 2,3-BDO productivity was 7.64 g/L/h at a dilution rate of 0.200/h, which was higher than the values achieved by continuous fermentation using pathogenic bacteria in the previous reports. These results demonstrate that continuous 2,3-BDO fermentation with flocculent 2,3-BDO-producing S. cerevisiae is a promising strategy for practical 2,3-BDO production.

A member of the Rho family of MONOMERIC GTP-BINDING PROTEINS from SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE. It is involved in morphological events related to the cell cycle. This enzyme was formerly listed as EC 220.127.116.11.
Proteins obtained from the species SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE. The function of specific proteins from this organism are the subject of intense scientific interest and have been used to derive basic understanding of the functioning similar proteins in higher eukaryotes.
The dry cells of any suitable strain of SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE or CANDIDA. It can be obtained as a by-product from the brewing of beer or by growing on media not suitable for beer production. Dried yeast serves as a source of protein and VITAMIN B COMPLEX.
A species of the genus SACCHAROMYCES, family Saccharomycetaceae, order Saccharomycetales, known as "baker's" or "brewer's" yeast. The dried form is used as a dietary supplement.
A set of nuclear proteins in SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE that are required for the transcriptional repression of the silent mating type loci. They mediate the formation of silenced CHROMATIN and repress both transcription and recombination at other loci as well. They are comprised of 4 non-homologous, interacting proteins, Sir1p, Sir2p, Sir3p, and Sir4p. Sir2p, an NAD-dependent HISTONE DEACETYLASE, is the founding member of the family of SIRTUINS.
