Strain Information

  • Information

    Type strain of Hansenula polymorpha. Procudes copper-containing amine oxidase. (Mu D, 1992). Produces SCP from xylose. (Feliu JA , 1990). Degrades xylose (D-xylose). (Feliu JA , 1990). Produces acetone reductase. (Verduyn C, 1992). Produces alcohol dehydrogenase. (Verduyn C, 1988a; Verduyn C, 1988b; Acta Biotechnol. 11: 373-378, 1991.) Produces alcohol oxidase. (Vonck J, 1992; Verduyn C, 1984). Produces glycerol 2-dehydrogenase (NADP) (dihydroxyacetone reductase). (Verduyn C, 1988). Catalase activity following growth on methanol (van Dijken JP , 1975).
