Information: 
<- DSMZ <- NCYC (Candida utilis) <- ATCC <- NRRL Synonyms: Candida utilis (Henneberg) Lodder et Kreger-van Rij, Pichia jadinii (Sartory et al.) Kurtzman, Torulopsis utilis (Henneberg) Lodder. Accumulates zinc, degrades alfalfa process wastes, fermentation of pickle process brine, degrades potato wastes, degrades rapeseed oil meal, degrades sauerkraut brine. Produces S-adenosylmethionine, produces acetaldehyde, produces ethyl acetate, produces methionine adenosyltransferase and S-adenosylmethionine synthetase, produces single-cell protein SCP, Quality control strain. Transformation host for expression of carotenogenic genes. Used in Controlled Ecological Life Support Systems (CELSS) for food. Quality control strain.
