Yields (Y) of glycerol on glucose and stoichiometric relationships between glycerol production and biomass formation in anaerobic chemostat cultures of S. cerevisiae reference strain IME324 (white bars) and the RuBisCO/PRK-expressing strain IMX774 (pDAN1-prk cbbm, blue bars). Cultures were grown on synthetic medium containing 20 g L−1 glucose (pH 5). Values represent averages ± mean deviations of measurements on independent duplicate cultures. * (p < 0.05) denotes statistical significance of value differences between IME324 and IMX774 at the same dilution rate and # (p < 0.01) indicates statistical significance of differences between the two dilution rates in cultures of the same strain in Student’s t tests
