“…Recently, there has been some progress in understanding ethanol tolerance. Plasma membrane phospholipids have been shown to play an important role in the ethanol tolerance mechanism (D'amore & Stewart, 1987;Mishra & Kaur, 1991;Mizoguchi & Hara, 1996). The difference in fatty acid composition of plasma membranes is shown to dramatically alter the permeability barrier of plasma membranes.…”

“…For the purpose of fermenting sugars from lignocellulosics where ethanol concentration in the fermentation broth can only reach as high as 10% (w/w), yeast can be considered ethanol tolerant as growth is suppressed at 12% (w/v) ethanol but fermentative capacity is as high as 30% (w/v) ethanol. Protoplast fusion, hybridization, and continuous culture selection have been used to obtain ethanol-tolerant yeasts [102]. Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast has been the main focus of researchers on improving its xylose fermenting ability.…”

“…Resistance to alcohols has been connected with fatty acid composition (Casey & Ingledew, 1986;Amore & Stewart, 1987). Thus ethanol provides an excellent system for studying environmental adaptation and its relation to structural changes of microbial membranes.…”
