Abstract: Saccharomyces cerevisiae preferentially uses its own fermentative metabolism when grown in glucose-rich media, even under fully aerobic conditions. This process involves the decarboxylation of pyruvate to acetaldehyde by means of pyruvate decarboxylase, followed by the reduction of acetaldehyde to ethanol, catalysed by alcohol dehydrogenase. Although nanoparticles may disturb biochemical processes, no studies were found which describe the modulation of energetic metabolism by nanoparticles under heat shock conditions. In this paper, it was observed that the addition of glucose to S. cerevisiae UE-ME3 grown in a respiratory medium caused an increase in cell viability and in the fermentative enzyme activities. In addition, yeast cells grown in respiratory-fermentative conditions exposed to titanium dioxide nanoparticules <100 (5 μg/mL) and heat shock (28/40 °C), in the last 100 min of the culture, showed a negative modulation of the aerobic fermentation in this wild-type wine yeast from the Alentejo (Portugal).
