Exceptional Solvent Tolerance in Yarrowia lipolytica Is Enhanced by Sterols

Wildtype Yarrowia and Engineered Yarrowia under a microscope.

Cong Trinh and his research team discovered exceptional solvent tolerance in Yarrowia lipolytica is enhanced by sterols. This finding enables development of next-generation biocatalysts for novel biotransformation in organic solvents.

This research is published in Metabolic Engineering.
