Glycerol Synthesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Glycerol, a major by-product of ethanol fermentation by Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is of significant importance to the wine, beer, and ethanol production industries. This investigation aims to gain a clearer understanding of and to quantify the extent to which parameters of the pathway affect glycerol flux in S. cerevisiae.

This investigation represents the data and models submitted to JWS online by Cronwright et al
( and described in the publication:

Cronwright GR, Rohwer JM, Prior BA.
Metabolic control analysis of glycerol synthesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Appl Environ Microbiol 2002 Sep;68(9):4448-56.
