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 ...
Molecular and physiological aspects of alcohol dehydrogenases in the ethanol metabolism Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(University of the Free State, 2007-05)
English: When Saccharomyces cerevisiae is grown on a fermentable carbon source such as glucose, the fermentative alcohol dehydrogenase, ADH I , catalyses the regeneration of NAD+ from NADH and produces ethanol from ...
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. ...
The effect of histone H3 and H4 mutants on the chronological lifespan of Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(University of the Free State, 2015)
In this study we maintained histone mutant strains in a batch culture. We observed that some strains significantly decreased at a lower rate in the quiescent population.Some strains disappeared from quiescent population ...
The production of 3-hydroxy fatty acids by the yeast Dipodascopsis uninucleata and its implications
(University of the Free State, 1999-11)
English: In 1991, a novel eicosanoid namely 3-hydroxy-5, 8, 11, 14-eicosatetraenoic acid (3-HETE) was uncovered in the yeast Dipodascopsis uninucleata by van Dyk and co-workers. Strikingly, the production of this compound ...
