Abstract : Yeasts belonging to 27 species of Saccharomyces were tested for their ability to use D-amino acids, L-lysine and various amines and amides as nitrogen source. Most yeasts capable of growing on L-lysine or amines could utilize D-amino acids. Saccharomyces (sensu strictu) have a very limited ability to grow on the organic nitrogen compounds tested. However, there is no obvious relationship between the utilization of these compounds and the proposed divisions of the genus Saccharomyces. (Author)
