Kluyveromyces lactis

Petite-negative ascomycete yeast used for genetic studies and industrial applications

Lineage: Eukaryota[1106]; Fungi[414]; Dikarya[361]; Ascomycota[282]; Saccharomycotina[61]; Saccharomycetes[61]; Saccharomycetales[61]; Saccharomycetaceae[34]; Kluyveromyces[4]; Kluyveromyces lactis[1]
Kluyveromyces lactis is a petite-negative yeast and thus cannot live without its mitochondrial DNA, whereas Saccharomyces cerevisiae can grow in the absence of mitochondrial DNA, it then grows only by glycolysis on fermentable carbon sources such as glucose. Compared to S. cerevisiae, it can use a wider variety of carbon sources, More...
