Overview of the principal metabolic pathways for erythritol and CA production in Y. lipolytica. In Y. lipolytica, glycerol is assimilated via phosphorylation by a glycerol kinase and subsequently is dehydrogenased to dihydroxyacetone phosphate by glycerol-3-P dehydrogenase. Then, the erythritol is synthetized via a pentose phosphate pathway in response to high osmotic stress. Citric acid synthesis occurs in mitochondria in the TCA cycle
