Molecular targets of oxidative stress.
  • S. Avery
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Biochemical journal
  • 1 March 2011
Aerobic life requires organisms to resist the damaging effects of ROS (reactive oxygen species), particularly during stress. Extensive research has established a detailed picture of how cells respondExpand

Destabilized green fluorescent protein for monitoring dynamic changes in yeast gene expression with flow cytometry.
Green fluorescent protein (GFP) has many advantages as a reporter molecule, but its stability makes it unsuitable for monitoring dynamic changes in gene expression, among other applications.Expand

Fate of caesium in the environment: Distribution between the abiotic and biotic components of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems
Abstract Interest in the fate of radiocaesium in the environment has heightened considerably in recent years in the wake of the Chernobyl accident in 1986. The distribution of released 137 Cs and 134Expand

Saccharomyces cerevisiae Expresses Three Phospholipid Hydroperoxide Glutathione Peroxidases*
The GPX1, GPX2, andGPX3 genes of Saccharomyces cerevisiaehave been reported previously to encode glutathione peroxidases (GPxs). We re-examined the sequence alignments of these proteins with GPxsExpand

The Yeast Glutaredoxins Are Active as Glutathione Peroxidases*
The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiaecontains two glutaredoxins, encoded by GRX1 andGRX2, which are active as glutathione-dependent oxidoreductases. Our studies show that changes in the levels ofExpand

Manganese toxicity towards Saccharomyces cerevisiae : Dependence on intracellular and extracellular magnesium concentrations
Abstract Inhibition of the growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was evident at concentrations of 0.5 mM Mn2+ or higher, but a tolerance to lower Mn2+ concentrations was observed. The inhibitory effectsExpand
