Topics from this paper

A history of research on yeasts 9: regulation of sugar metabolism 1
TLDR
A chronology of key events and observations leading to and after the publication of the first reports of the “Pasteur effect” and its publication in “Journal of Experimental Biology” (23 June 1916). Expand
Purification of antimicrobial peptides secreted by Saccharomyces cerevisiae and proteomic analysis of cell membrane-associated proteins
TLDR
This document summarizes current research and plans for further studies into the determinants of earthquake-triggered landsliding and their effects on seismic activity in the Northern Hemisphere. Expand
Energy Metabolism by the Yeast Cell
Most (not all) genera and species of yeast can ferment sugars to ethanol anaerobically. This is why research on yeast fermentation has (and still does) receive extensive financial support in manyExpand
The Genetic Makeup and Expression of the Glycolytic and Fermentative Pathways Are Highly Conserved Within the Saccharomyces Genus
The ability of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to convert glucose, even in the presence of oxygen, via glycolysis and the fermentative pathway to ethanol has played an important role in itsExpand
Engineering synthetic glycolytic pathways in Saccharomyes cerevisiae
TLDR
It is demonstrated that it is possible to integrally replace an essential metabolic pathway, which is essential for the viability of the cell, and provides a basis for a new, modular approach for metabolic engineering, in which entire metabolic routes can be quickly replaced and optimized. Expand
Evaluation of precursor and cofactor engineering strategies influencing fatty acid metabolism in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
If humanity is to reduce the rate of climate change, it is essential that our societies switch to a more sustainable production of fuels and chemicals, which in turn depends on technologicalExpand
Factors involved in anaerobic growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
A review of the factors that play a role in the survival in the absence of molecular oxygen and the composition of the cell wall and cell membrane show major differences when aerobic and anaerobic cells are compared. Expand
The Pentose Phosphate Pathway in Yeasts–More Than a Poor Cousin of Glycolysis
TLDR
The phenotypes of gene deletions and the benefits of their overproduction and modification are described, and future studies on the PPP in K. lactis are proposed to be of special interest for basic science and as a host for the expression of human disease genes. Expand
Factors involved in anaerobic growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
The switch from respiratory metabolism to fermentation has attracted much attention in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, but it has been found that many more factors play a role than previously thought. Expand
Quantification and understanding of the fermentative ability of re-pitched yeast
Brewer’s collect yeast from one fermentation and re-pitch the cells into subsequent fermentations; this process is termed serial re-pitching. Deviations in the serial repitching process often impactExpand

Factors affecting glycerol production by a newly isolated osmophilic yeast.
TLDR
The osmophilic yeasts have been of interest since .N-ickerson and Carrol (1945) reported that Zygosaccharomyces acidifaciens produced glycerol in yields up to 22 per cent of the sugar fermented along with ethyl alcohol, acetic and lactic acids, and carbon dioxide. Expand
The alcoholic ferment of yeast-juice. Part III.-The function of phosphates in the fermentation of glucose by yeast-juice
In a previous communication the authors have shown that when a soluble phosphate is added to a fermenting mixture of glucose and yeast-juice the following phenomena are to be observed: (1) The rateExpand

  • S. Goldhor
  • Medicine

TLDR
The history of cell respiration from Galen and Harvey, Lavoisier and Pasteur, to the now classic but then misunderstood work of MacMunn, and from Keilin's own early work through to the comparatively recent discoveries of the properties and structure of cytochromes is an intensely personal history.
