Genealogy of principal strains of the yeast genetic stock center.
We have constructed a genealogy of strain S288C, from which many of the mutant and segregant strains currently used in studies on the genetics and molecular biology of Saccharomyces cerevisiae haveExpand
Life Span of Individual Yeast Cells
THE division of a yeast cell by budding gives rise to two cells which are identifiable, that is, the mother cell from which the bud arose, and the daughter cell which developed from the bud. The wallExpand
Molecular genetics of yeast :a practical approach
1: Procedures for isolating yeast DNA for different purposes. 2: Construction of cloning and expression vectors. 3: Cosmid cloning of yeast DNA. 4: The construction and use of cDNA libraries forExpand
Electrophoretic karyotyping of laboratory and commercial strains of Saccharomyces and other yeasts
Of 29 strains of various Saccharomyces spp., 24 gave generally similar chromosomal band patterns (14 to 17 bands in the size range from 200 to 2,000 kilobase pairs), as determined by orthogonal fieldExpand
Genotypic characterization of strains of commercial wine yeasts by tetrad analysis.
The objective of this work was to use tetrad analysis to define the genotypes of a number of commercially available wine yeasts for a range of characteristics related to wine making. The levels ofExpand
It is proposed that the flocculation genes in Saccharomyces spp. hitherto referred to as FLO 1, FLO 2, and FLO 4 are allelic and that they be consolidated into a single gene locus, to be knownExpand
Genetic Control of Flocculation
Flocculation—or conversely, lack of flocculation—is a most important characteristic of yeast strains used in industrial fermentations. Unfortunately, a certain degree of confusion has arisen by useExpand
Discrimination by heat and proteinase treatments between flocculent phenotypes conferred on Saccharomyces cerevisiae by the genes FLO1 and FLO5.
The effects of elevated temperature and of digestion with a variety of proteinases on the flocforming ability of flocculent strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, both genetically defined (FLO1 andExpand
A short review of the development of yeast genetics in general, and with respect to flocculation in particular, is presented. At least three genes, two dominant and one recessive, confer flocculence,Expand
Toxicity of ethanol, n-butanol and iso-amyl alcohol inSaccharomycescerevisiae when supplied separately and in mixtures
SummaryEthanol, n-butanol and iso-amyl alcohol concentration caused an exponential decrease in the viability ofSaccharomycescerevisiae cells. n-Butanol and iso-amyl alcohol, both products ofExpand
