Title
Overexpression of MSN2 in a sake yeast strain promotes ethanol tolerance and increases ethanol production in sake brewing
Abstract

To improve the ethanol tolerance of sake yeast we constructed a sake yeast strain that overexpresses MSN2, a transcription factor that is activated by several environmental stresses, including ethanol. We showed that this strain is more ethanol tolerant and produced more ethanol in a sake mash than a control strain.
