The main feature of this strain is that it’s a homozygote for the complete, long version of the IRC7 gene. This gene codifies the synthesis of a β-lyase enzyme, uniquely involved in the liberation of thiols (mainly 4-MMP) bound to cysteine. When used for the fermentation of thiolic varieties, EnartisFerm Q4 expresses the varietal aroma and specifically enhances the notes of box tree, tomato leaf, blackcurrant and pipi de chat associated with 4-MMP.
