Schizosaccharomyces pombe was first described by Linder in 1893. It has been isolated from several alcoholic beverages: beer, palm and grape wines, Arak, rum, and cider. Some strains possess the important economic property of destroying L-malic acid by fermentation. It is an ascopo-rogenous yeast with separated vegetative cells which, like Saccharomyces cerevisiae, belongs to the Endomycetaceae phylogenic family. The two yeasts are, however, classified in distinct subfamilies, since S. pombe divides by transverse fission while S. cerevisiae multiplies by budding.1 The biochemical and genetic properties of S. pombe are actively studied and have been recently reviewed.2–4
