Uptake and conversion analysis of octanoic acid. a 1-Octanol production and b octanoic acid consumption of S. cerevisiae BY4741 expressing CAR and Sfp from a multicopy plasmid. Cultivation was performed for 72 h in buffered YPD medium without and with supplementation of 90 mg L−1 octanoic acid. For reference, noninoculated cultivation medium was treated analogously. Error bars reflect the standard deviations from three biological replicates
