A recently isolated osmo-tolerant yeast Candida tropicalis A1, which could decolorize various azo dyes under high-salinity conditions, was systematically characterized in the present study. Stimulating dye-decolorization effectiveness and osmo-tolerance of the yeast by static magnetic field (SMF) was investigated and transcriptomic responses of the yeast to SMF was analyzed to propose possible mechanisms. The results demonstrated that the yeast A1 effectively decolorized (≥ 97.50% within 12 h) and detoxified (from high toxicity to low toxicity within 24 h) 70 mg/L Acid Red B (ARB) under the optimized conditions through a series of steps including naphthalene-amidine bond cleavage, reductive or oxidative deamination/desulfurization, open-loop of hydroxy-substituted naphthalene or benzene and TCA cycle. Moreover, dye decolorization performance and osmo-tolerance of the yeast A1 were further improved by 24.6 mT SMF. Genes encoding high-affinity hexose/glucose transporter proteins and NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductase were up-regulated by 24.6 mT SMF, which might be responsible for the increase of dye decolorization. Significant up-regulation of glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase and cell wall protein RHD3 suggested that osmo-tolerance was enhanced by 24.6 mT SMF through promoting production and intracellular accumulation of glycerol as compatible solute, as well as regulation of cell wall component. In conclusion, 24.6 mT SMF led to the up-regulation of related genes resulting in enhanced dye biodegradation efficiency and osmo-tolerance of the yeast A1. Copyright © 2020 The Authors.
