Characterization of intergeneric hybrids obtained by protoplast fusion between Phaffia rhodozyma, Cryptococcus laurentii and Saccharomyces cerevisiae



Characterization of intergeneric hybrids obtained by protoplast fusion between Phaffia rhodozyma, Cryptococcus laurentii and Saccharomyces cerevisiae



Biotechnology Techniques 11(10): 769-771



Protoplast fusion was used to obtain hybrids between Phaffia rhodozyma and Cryptococcus laurentii or Saccharomyces cerevisiae (petite form). Hybrids were obtained which produced the carotenoids beta-carotene, phytoene and phytofluene, and were respiratory-competent and prototrophic.
