We characterized high malic acid-producing strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated from sake mash. We compared the gene expression of these strains with those of the parental strain by DNA microarray, and found that stress response genes, such as HSP12, were commonly upregulated in the high malate-producing strains, whereas thiamine synthesis genes, such as THI4 and SNZ2, were downregulated in these strains.
