YPD Broth is a nutritious general liquid growth medium commonly used for the maintenance and propagation of Pichia pastoris, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and other yeasts. It is a medium used for molecular cloning, protein expression, or as enrichment media. Peptic digest of animal tissue provides nitrogenous nutrients. Yeast extract provides nitrogenous nutrients as well as Vitamin B Complex. Dextrose provides the carbohydrate and energy source to support the growth of S. cerevisiae.
YPD Broth is recommended for the growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae for molecular biology purposes. This medium supports the growth of most heterotrophic microorganisms but due to their simple composition, they have been adopted as the basal media for the routine cultivation of yeasts. General methods in yeast genetics specify using Yeast Extract Peptone- Dextrose (YPD) medium for cultivating S. cerevisiae and other yeasts.
