Pulvirenti A, et al. (2004) Occurrence and dominance of yeast species in sourdough. Lett Appl Microbiol 38(2):113-7
Abstract: AIMS: The aim of this work is to identify the dominant yeast species in homemade sourdoughs. METHODS AND RESULTS: PCR/restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of internal transcribed spacer regions was used for the identification of isolates and the data were confirmed with phenotypic tests. The strains belonging to Saccharomyces cerevisiae were identified to strain level by analysis of inter-delta regions. CONCLUSION: This work shows that the dominant species in homemade sourdoughs can differ from each other. Saccharomyces cerevisiae was found to be the dominant species, followed by the Candida milleri, C. humilis, S. exiguus and Issatchenkia orientalis. The inter-delta regions of S. cerevisiae strains showed high polymorphism. SIGNIFICANCE AND IMPACT OF THE STUDY: Occurrence of single, non-Saccharomyces species and S. cerevisiae polymorphism in the yeast populations of sourdough samples.
