Exposure of Yeast Cells to Anoxia Induces Transient Oxidative Stress
The mitochondrial respiratory chain is required for the induction of some yeast hypoxic nuclear genes. Because the respiratory chain produces reactive oxygen species (ROS), which can mediateExpand

Mitochondrial Protein Oxidation in Yeast Mutants Lacking Manganese-(MnSOD) or Copper- and Zinc-containing Superoxide Dismutase (CuZnSOD)
Saccharomyces cerevisiae expresses two forms of superoxide dismutase (SOD): MnSOD, encoded by SOD2, which is located within the mitochondrial matrix, and CuZnSOD, encoded by SOD1, which is located inExpand

Isolation and characterization of a novel alkalitolerant thermophile, Anaerobranca horikoshii gen. nov., sp. nov.
Nine moderately alkalitolerant thermophilic bacteria with similar properties were isolated from water and soil samples obtained from Yellowstone National Park. These Gram-type-positive, rod-shapedExpand

Clostridium thermoalcaliphilum sp. nov., an anaerobic and thermotolerant facultative alkaliphile.
An anaerobic and thermophilic alkaliphile, strain JW/YL23-2T (T = type strain), was isolated from sewage sludge obtained from a sewage plant in Atlanta, Ga. At pH 10.1 and 50 degrees C, the doublingExpand

Decremental carryover effects of sucrose ingestion in the negative anticipatory contrast procedure in rats.
To test for retrospective effects of sucrose ingestion in the anticipatory contrast procedure, 4 experiments examined intake of an initial 0.15% saccharin solution as a function of the unsignaledExpand

Measurement of oxidative stress in cells exposed to hypoxia and other changes in oxygen concentration.
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses different methods for measuring oxidative stress in yeast cells exposed to anoxia. Reliable assays involve measuring oxidative DNA and protein damage, andExpand

Deletion mutant analysis of the Staphylococcus aureus plasmid pI258 mercury-resistance determinant.
Deletion mutant analysis of the mercury-resistant determinant (mer operon) from the Staphylococcus aureus plasmid pI258 was used to verify the location of the merA and merB genes and to show theExpand

Effect of osmotic variation on the outer membrane proteins of Vibrio vulnificus: identification of a major heat-modifiable protein.
Cells of the moderately halophilic bacterium Vibrio vulnificus showed marked morphological changes, manifested primarily by pronounced cell elongation when grown in a defined medium with increasedExpand
