The aim of the present work was the identification of the gene encoding for β-glucosidase and its partial sequencing in the strainsPichia anomala AL112,Hanseniaspora uvarum Y8 andSaccharomyces cerevisiae AL41. To this aim degenerated primers, designed on the basis of aminoacid similarities of four known yeast β-glucosidases, have been used in PCR amplifications. An expected fragment of about 200 bp was amplified from all the DNAs, cloned and sequenced. Sequence homology demonstrated for the first time the presence of a β-glucosidase encoding gene inHanseniaspora uvarum andSaccharomyces cerevisiae.
