Preferably the recombinant yeast is transformed with a coding region encoding an enzyme selected from L-galactose dehydrogenase, L-galactono-1,4-lactone dehydrogenase, D-arabinose dehydrogenase, D-arabinono-1,4-lactone oxidase or L-gulono-1,4-lactone oxidase.
No interfering peaks at m/z 253 were obtained with D-galactose, D-arabinose, D-ribose, and D-xylose.
