Isoamyl acetate is an important flavor compound in sake. However, production of isoamyl acetate by Saccharomyces cerevisiae is significantly reduced during sake brewing with rice that has a high polishing ratio, because unsaturated fatty acids derived from the outer layer of rice repress the expression of ATF1, which encodes an alcohol acetyl transferase. Yeast mutants capable of relieving this repression would allow the brewing of rice with high polishing ratios, improving the diversity of taste and flavor of sake...

Thermally assisted hydrolysis and methylation-gas chromatography (THM-GC) in the presence of trimethylsulfonium hydroxide, using a vertical microfurnace pyrolyzer, was validated for the compositional analysis of fatty acid components in microalgae. The chromatograms of a microalga, Pavlova lutheri , obtained under optimized THM conditions clearly showed a series of fatty acid methyl esters including thermally labile polyunsaturated fatty acid components. On the basis of these peak areas, their chemical compositions were rapidly determined without using any tedious sample pretreatment with a precision of <8% relative standard deviation...

Maf transcription factors constitute a family of the basic region-leucine zipper (bZip) factors and recognize unusually long DNA motifs (13 or 14 bp), termed the Maf recognition element (MARE). The MARE harbors extended GC sequences on each side of its core motif, which is similar to TRE or CRE (7 or 8 bp) recognized by the AP1 and CREB/ATF families, respectively. To ascertain the structural basis governing the acquirement of such unique DNA recognition, we determined the crystal structure of the MafG-DNA complex...
