From: A strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiaeevolved for fermentation of lignocellulosic biomass displays improved growth and fermentative ability in high solids concentrations and in the presence of inhibitory compounds

Figure 6

Conversion of furfural (FF) and hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) to their less toxic alcohol derivatives. XR122N and AJP50 were compared for their ability to convert FF and HMF to their less toxic alcohol derivatives FF alcohol (FF-OH) and HMF alcohol (HMF-OH). The concentration of each compound is presented for each organism during a 30-hour fermentation in tryptic soy broth with 2% w/v glucose.
