    • Ascospore release and oxylipin production in the yeast Dipodascopsis 

      Goldblatt, Monique E. (University of the Free State, 2007-11)
      The genus Dipodascopsis was extensively studied with regards to reproductive cycles as well as the presence, distribution and function of 3-OH oxylipins. Most of this research was carried out on D. uninucleata var. uninucleata ...
    • Lipids and ascospore morphology in yeasts 

      Bareetseng, Andries Sechaba (University of the Free State, 2004-10)
      Some yeasts produce sexual spores (ascospores) in a variety of shapes and surface ornamentations. These intriguing structures have hitherto been used only in yeast classification. In this study the likely primary function ...
    • Oxylipins in automictic yeast life cycles 

      Swart, Chantel Wendy (University of the Free State, 2007-11)
      English: 3-OH oxylipins are saturated and unsaturated oxidized fatty acids which are produced in mitochondria via incomplete b-oxidation or fatty acid synthesis type II. These compounds possibly play an important role in ...
    • Oxylipins in the yeast genus Ascoidea 

      Ncango, Desmond Mbulelo (University of the Free State, 2007-05)
      English: Acetylsalicylic acid (ASA)-sensitive 3-hydroxy (3-OH) oxylipins were uncovered in 1991 in the yeast Dipodascopsis uninucleata. Since then, various similar oxylipins were found to be widely distributed in fungi. ...
