Pichia methanolica (Pichia pinus MH4)

  • Andrei A. Sibirny

Abstract

Pichia methanolica was first described by Kato and coworkers (Kato et al. 1974). The yeast strain used in the laboratory of Dr. I.I. Tolstorukov (Moscow) for thorough genetic study was isolated in the Institute of Biotechnology, Leipzig, Germany, and was formerly identified by German scientists as Pichia pinus, strain MH4 (Tolstorukov 1994; see below).
