Пігменти дріжджів, виділених з печери Мушкарова Яма
Aim. To identify color pigments of yeast isolated from the Mushkarova Yama cave (Ukraine). Methods. The color pigments were obtained from yeast cells and dissolved in solution (TCL-method, spectroscopy analysis). Results. The color yeasts were isolated from the karst cave. The obtained pigments were identifycated as torulin and torularhodin by TLC-methods and spectroscopy analysis. Conclusions. The data indicates ability of carotenoids pigments’ biosynthesis in the yeast isolated from karst cave Mushkarova Yama.
Key words: yeast, carotenoids, torulin, torularhodin.
