Growth Promoting Substance in Yeast Extract for Methylotrophic Growth of Candida boidinii
A growth-promoting substance (GPS) for methylotrophic yeasts was purified from yeast extract. The purified GPS showed growth promotion by reducing the lag time of the growth of methylotrophic <I>Candida boidinii</I>, while the growth rate at the exponential phase was the same as that of growth without GPS. GPS was finally identified to be <small>L</small>-proline by the criteria of instrumental analysis and chemical shift assignments.
