Phenotypic and genetic characterization of Debaryomyces hansenii strains exposed to cobalt and saline stress
Debaryomyces (Torulaspora) hansenii, an osmotolerant yeast of mostly marine origin, has become of keen interest for physiological, metabolic, genetic and molecular studies due to its versatility to survive and thrive under ...
Common bacterial symbionts in clonal cultures of the toxic dinoflagellate Ostreopsis lenticularis
The marine toxic dinoflagellate Ostreopsis lenticularis Fukuyo 1981 is implicated as the major vector in ciguatera fish poisoning in the southwest coast of Puerto Rico. Studies have demonstrated that bacteria play a role ...
Deciphering the Debaryomyces spp. complex using next generation sequencing: Are they the same species?
Debaryomyces hansenii is a unicellular marine yeast, from the Phylum Ascomycota and is widely distributed in nature. It has been isolated from high salt environments like estuaries and bays, to salty foods and cheese. ...
Characterization of microorganisms with carbohydrase activities from tropical ecosystems
Several microorganisms have been isolated from different tropical ecosystems (tropical rain forest, sea water, and marine sediments) from the island of Puerto Rico. These microorganisms were screened for carbohydrase ...
Transcriptomic analysis of cobalt stress in the marine yeast Debaryomyces hansenii
Debaryomyces hansenii is a very versatile marine yeast capable of thriving under extreme conditions. Particularly important studies performed on this yeast include studies on osmotolerance and heavy metal resistance of ...
