The substrate specificity of two yeast strains utilizing hydrocarbons
StrainsCandida lipolytica 4-1 andCandida lipolytica K were compared in their growth and dawaxing capacities during batch growth on model gas oil. The model gas oil was composed of a mixture of even-numbered puren-alkanes (n-decane ton-dotriacontane) dissolved in dewaxed gas oil. The results show that both strains differ in their substrate specificity and in the sequence of utilization of individualn-alkanes. Strain K, previously used for dewaxing of mineral oil, has its substrate specificity shifted toward the highern-alkanes.
