  1. 6. Functional Characterization of the Yeast Tumour Suppressor Homologue Sro7p

    University dissertation from University of Gothenburg

    Author : Annabelle Forsmark; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biologi; Biology; Yeast; protein sorting; protein secretion; L 2 GL; tumour suppressor; SRO7; SRO77; ENA1; exocytosis; post-Golgi vesicles; ART5; E3 adaptor; ubiquitylation; ATLGL1; ATLGL2;

    Abstract : Correct targeting of newly synthesized proteins to appropriate domains of the cell membrane is crucial to cellular architecture, polarity and function, making it no surprise that many proteins of the secretory machinery are conserved throughout evolution. This work presents a functional characterisation of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell polarity protein and tumour suppressor homologue, Sro7p. READ MORE

  2. 7. Evolution of Yeast Respiro-Fermentative Lifestyle and the Underlying Mechanisms Behind Aerobic Fermentation

    University dissertation from Lund University, Department of Biology

    Author : Arne Hagman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : aerobic fermentation; Crabtree effect; respiro-fermentation; ethanol production; yeast; central carbon metabolism; evolution of alternative lifestyles; Naturvetenskap Biologiska vetenskaper; Natural Sciences Biological Sciences;

    Abstract : Under aerobic conditions, most yeasts such as Kluyveromyces lactis, prefer the respiratory pathway and some, such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae prefer less energy efficient fermentative pathway for their energy metabolism. These two metabolic strategies are also known as Crabtree negative and Crabtree positive respectively, and the evolution of the latter has lately been explained by the “make-accumulate-consume” life strategy.

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Galyna Bartish; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Natural Sciences Biological Sciences Cell Biology; Naturvetenskap Biologiska vetenskaper Cellbiologi; Elongation factor 2; yeast; ribosome; phosphorylation; Switch I; site-directed mutagenesis; functional complementation; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Cell biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Cellbiologi; cellbiologi; Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Synthesis of proteins is performed by the ribosome, a large ribonucleoprotein complex. Apart from the ribosome, numerous protein factors participate in this process. Elongation factor 2 (eEF2) is one of these factors. eEF2 is an essential protein with a mol. READ MORE

  5. 10. Bioreduction of Carbonyl Compounds to Chiral Alcohols by Whole Yeast Cells: Process Optimisation, Strain Design and Non-Conventional Yeast Screening

    University dissertation from Secretary, Applied Microbiology Lund University

    Author : Michael Katz; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : carbonyl; bicyclic diketone; yeast; candida; cerevisiae; reductase; ketone; reduction; whole cell; YMR226c; YDR368w; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Biokemisk teknik; Biochemical technology; mykologi; virologi; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; Teknik och teknologier Industriell bioteknik; Engineering and Technology Industrial Biotechnology;

    Abstract : Chiral building blocks are needed for the production of drugs and fine chemicals, which requires the use of several synthetic routes to produce a specific enantiomer of interest. One promising approach to introduce chirality into molecules is the stereo-selective whole cell bioreduction of carbonyl compounds or ketones to the corresponding chiral alcohols. READ MORE
