In this manuscript we explore the feasibility of using LWUV-VIS-SWNIR (340-1100 nm) spectroscopy to classify Saccharomyces cerevisiae colony structures in YP agar and YPD agar, under different growth conditions, such as: i) no alcohol; ii) 1 % (v/v) Ethanol; iii) 1 % (v/v) 1-Propanol; iv) 1 % (v/v) 1-butanol; v) 1 % (v/v) Isopropanol; vi) 1 % (v/v)(More)
The integrated endoplasmic reticulum stress response (IERSR) is an evolutionarily conserved adaptive mechanism that ensures endoplasmic reticulum (ER) homeostasis and cellular survival in the presence of stress including nutrient deprivation, hypoxia, and imbalance of Ca(+) homeostasis, toxins, and microbial infection. Three transmembrane proteins regulate(More)
Tasmanian blue gum (Eucalyptus globulus) has been increasingly used in forestry outside its native range, and is nowadays one of the most important pulpwood species in the world. E. globulus has great economic importance in many countries, and in Portugal it has recently become the most widespread tree species. However, there is also an increasing concern(More)

Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is a chronic granulomatous disease caused by the thermally dimorphic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. T helper 1 (Th1)-mediated immunity is primarily responsible for acquired resistance during P. brasiliensis infection. On the contrary, the susceptibility is associated with occurrence of type-2 immunity (Th2), which is(More)
