High impact information on CEM1

  • However, a recessive mutation in a gene designated cem1 has been obtained which, combined with the expression of beta-glucosidase activity, allows the growth of S. cerevisiae on cellobiose [1].
  • The expression of the blgA gene in a cem1 strain confers on S. cerevisiae the capability for an efficient fermentation of cellobiose, as detected by the formation of CO2 [1].
