Saccharomyces

Definitions

  • WordNet 3.6
    • n Saccharomyces single-celled yeasts that reproduce asexually by budding; used to ferment carbohydrates
    • ***
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • n Saccharomyces (Biol) A genus of budding fungi, the various species of which have the power, to a greater or less extent, or splitting up sugar into alcohol and carbonic acid. They are the active agents in producing fermentation of wine, beer, etc. Saccharomyces cerevisiæ is the yeast of sedimentary beer. Also called Torula.

    • n saccharomyces A genus of minute saprophytic fungi; the yeast-fungi. They are unicellular fungi, destitute of true hyphæ, and increasing principally by budding or sprouting, although asci containing one to four hyaline spores are produced in a few species under certain conditions. Sexual generation is not known. The species of Saccharomyces occur in fermenting substances, and are well known from their power of converting sugar into alcohol and carbonic acid. Ordinary yeast, S. cerevisiæ, is the most familiar example; it is added to the wort of beer, the juice of fruits, etc., for the purpose of inducing fermentation. S. ellipsoideus and S. Pastorianus are also alcoholic ferments. S. albicans, the thrush-fungus, which lives parasitically on the mucous membrane of the human digestive organs, is also capable of exciting a weak alcoholic fermentation in a sugar solution. S. Mycoderma is the well-known flowers of wine. There are 31 species of Saccharomyces known, of which number 12 are known to produce asci. Many of these so-called species may prove to be only form-species. See barm, flowers of wine (under flower), bloody bread (under bloody), fermentation, and yeast.
