Table 3 Maximal biomass yield (YX/S) and astaxanthin production (YP/S) in MK19 for various combinations of glucose concentration and liquid volume

From: Deregulation of phytoene-β-carotene synthase results in derepression of astaxanthin synthesis at high glucose concentration in Phaffia rhodozyma astaxanthin-overproducing strain MK19
