Table 2 Furfural and HMF reduction activity in crude cell extracts of Ethanol Red and ISO12

From: Adaptive evolution of an industrial strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae for combined tolerance to inhibitors and temperature

Temperature Strain Specific activity on furfural (mU/mg) Specific activity on HMF (mU/mg)
NADH NADPH NADH NADPH
30°C Ethanol Red 792 ± 247 479 ± 115 ND 514 ± 81
ISO12 677 ± 263 45 ± 9 ND 26 ± 4
39°C Ethanol Red 352 ± 202 179 ± 21 ND 200 ± 23
ISO12 372 ± 137 31 ± 7 ND ND
  1. The activities were measured using NADH or NADPH as co-factor. The values are averages of at least two independent measurements and standard deviations are presented.
