The role of lipids in the flocculation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(University of the Free State, 2005-11)
English: Although beer production is one of the oldest biotechnologies in the world, a major constraint in brewing remains controlling flocculation. Evidence points towards a possible role of lipids, associated with the ...
Gas bubble formation in fermenting and non-fermenting yeasts
(University of the Free State, 2016-02)
English: Literature previously suggested that intracellular gas bubble formation cannot occur in microorganisms even under high gas supersaturation. This observation was disproved with the discovery of gas bubbles in the ...
The role of post translational modifications in the regulation of binding of linker histone Hho1 to chromatin in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(University of the Free State, 2015-02)
The eukaryotic genome is functionally organized into a highly ordered nucleoprotein structure, chromatin. Apart from the four nucleosomal core histones, the linker histone is pivotal to fluidity and compaction of chromatin. ...
Over-expression, purification and characterization of Adh5p from Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(University of the Free State, 2010-05)
English: In the past few decades much research has been conducted on yeast alcohol dehydrogenases with emphasis on their role in S. cerevisiae. There are seven known Adh proteins that were identified in S. cerevisiae. ...
Chemical modifications of core histones during exit of stationary phase in Saccharomyces cerevisae
(University of the Free State, 2011-02)
The involvement of histone acetylation in facilitating gene expression is well-established, particularly in the case of histones H3 and H4. It was previously shown in Saccharomyces cerevisiae that gene expression was ...
