Table 3 Kinetic constants for glucose and fructose consumption (k, in h−1) and time to consume half (t50, in h) of the initial concentration of glucose and fructose calculated for the S. cerevisiae yeasts PE-2 (starter yeast) and the rough strain in semi-synthetic medium containing both glucose and fructose as carbon sources, at 30 °C, without agitation

From: Effects of feedstock and co-culture of Lactobacillus fermentum and wild Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain during fuel ethanol fermentation by the industrial yeast strain PE-2
