A novel oxylipin-associated ‘ghosting’ phenomenon in yeast flocculation
Research on the distribution of oxylipins (3-hydroxy fatty acids) in flocculant strains of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae led to the uncovering of a novel ‘ghosting’ phenomenon observed duringExpand

An acetylsalicylic acid-sensitive aggregation phenomenon in Dipodascopsis uninucleata
Aggregation of ascospores has been discovered in the yeast Dipodascopsis uninucleata. When this yeast is cultivated to reach the sexual reproductive stage, small ascospores are individually releasedExpand

Mapping 3-hydroxy oxylipins on ascospores of Eremothecium sinecaudum
Abstract3-Hydroxy oxylipins were uncovered on ascospores of Eremothecium sinecaudum using immunofluorescence microscopy. This was confirmed by gas chromatography mass spectrometry. These oxylipinsExpand

Mapping the distribution of 3-hydroxylipins in the Mucorales using immunofluorescence microscopy
The distribution of endogenous 3-hydroxylipins (3-OH oxylipins) in representatives of the Mucorales was mapped using immunofluorescence microscopy. Strains of each of the following genera wereExpand

Bioprospecting for novel hydroxyoxylipins in fungi: presence of 3-hydroxy palmitic acid in Saccharomycopsis malanga
Electron microscopy studies indicated that the major oxylipin 3-hydroxy palmitic acid (16:0) was associated with aggregating vegetative cells and formed a web-like structure around these cells. CrossExpand

Ascospore aggregation and oxylipin distribution in the yeast Dipodascopsis tothii
Upon cultivation of the yeast Dipodascopsis tothii in its sexual stage, small ascospores are released individually from the ascus tip, which then assemble in sheathed cluster balls. In contrast toExpand

Oxylipins and ascospore morphology in the ascomycetous yeast genus Dipodascus
Immunofluorescence microscopy was used to assess members of the yeast genus Dipodascus for the presence of 3-hydroxy oxylipins. Fluorescence was associated with the aggregating ascospores in allExpand

Differentiation between Yeast Species, and Strains within a Species, by Cellular Fatty Acid Analysis
Summary The cellular long-chain fatty acids (FA’s) of 88 strains representing 12 yeast species were examined by gas Chromatographic analysis on a polar capillary column. Mass spectral evidence forExpand
