The impact of transcriptional factors Znf1 and Sip4 on xylose alcoholic fermentation in recombinant strains of yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Dzanajewa L.S., Ruchala J., Sibirny A.A., Dmytruk K.V.


SUMMARY. In recent years the demand for technical ethanol has increased due to its use in the transportation sector. Xylose is the major five-carbon sugar obtained as a result of lignocellulose hydrolysis, however, an industrial producer of alcohol Ц S. cerevisiae yeast Ц ferments exclusively hexoses. Based on a recombinant strain capable of xylose metabolism, the derivatives with increased expression of the ZNF1 gene and deletion of the SIP4 gene, encoding transcription factors, were constructed. It was found that overexpression of ZNF1 gene did not affect the fermentation of glucose or xylose. The deletion of the SIP4 gene did not affect the fermentation of glucose, but resulted in a 29 % decrease in ethanol production during xylose fermentation as compared to the parental strain.
