  1. 1. Catabolism of Pyrimidines in Yeast

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Anna Rasmussen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; catabolism of pyrimidines; Pyrimidine degradation; nucleic acid precursors; yeast; Lachancea kluyveri; URC pathway;

    Abstract : Pyrimidines are important precursors for nucleic acids, and constantly synthesized and degraded in the cell to maintain a balanced supply. Many microoganisms can also extract the nitrogens from the pyrimidine ring, and use them as a nitrogen source when “preferred” sources are absent. READ MORE

  2. 2. Elongation factor 2: A key component of the translation machinery in eukaryotes : Properties of yeast elongation factor 2 studied in vivo

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

    Author : Galyna Bartish; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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

  3. 3. Chromosome synapsis and recombination in yeast meiosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för molekylärbiologi och funktionsgenomik

    Author : Hasanuzzaman Bhuiyan; Stockholms universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; meiosis; recombination; synapsis; yeast; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Meiosis is a cell division process that produces haploid gametes from diploid cells. Several important meiotic events take place during prophase of meiosis I, most important being homologous chromosome pairing, meiotic recombination and formation of the synaptonemal complex (SC).

  4. 4. Imaging of nucleocytoplasmic transcription factor dynamics in yeast

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Kristofer Bodvard; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biofysik; Biophysics; Fluorescence microscopy; light stress; single-cell; yeast; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; transcription factor; signalling; image analysis;

    Abstract : Fluorescence microscopy has proven to be an invaluable tool in identifying and understanding cell signalling, intracellular spatial and temporal dynamics, and cell-to-cell variability. This thesis focuses on imaging of nucleocytoplasmic transcription factor dynamics at the single cell level in yeast. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ethanol production from lignocellulose using high local cell density yeast cultures. Investigations of flocculating and encapsulated Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University dissertation from University of Borås: School of Engineering ; Chalmers University of Technology: Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering

    Author : Johan Westman; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; Högskolan i Borås.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Yeast; encapsulation; lignocellulose; ethanol; fermentation; flocculation; inhibitors; tolerance; xylose; co-utilisation; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning; yeast; Resource Recovery;

    Abstract : Efforts are made to change from 1st to 2nd generation bioethanol production, using lignocellulosics as raw materials rather than using raw materials that alternatively can be used as food sources. An issue with lignocellulosics is that a harsh pretreatment step is required in the process of converting them into fermentable sugars. READ MORE
