  • a All strains were pregrown in shake flasks with glucose, for strains CEN.PK113-7D and IMY104, or ethanol, for strains IMX216, IMU064, and IMQ011, as a carbon source, supplemented with 50 ng/ml lipoic acid. Averages and standard deviations were obtained from duplicate experiments. The detection limit of the enzyme assays was 3 nmol/min/mg of protein. BDL, below detection limit; ND, not determined.
