ABSTRACT : Several kinds of yeasts were isolated from wild flowers collected from Muju resort of Deogyu mountain in Korea and
identified by comparison of nucleotide sequences of D1/D2 region of 26S rDNA using BLAST. Totally twenty-two strains of eight
species were isolated and (9 strains) and (6 strains) were dominant species. The
supernatant and cell-free extracts were prepared and their antioxidant activity, anti-gout xanthine oxidase inhibitory activity and
whitening tyrosinase inhibitory activity were investigated. Anti-gout xanthine oxidase inhibitory activities of
JS00583 and JS00581 were 40.4% and 39.1%, respectively and also was 36.1% whitening tyrosinase
inhibitory activity in the supernatant of JS00570.
