An Antifungal Antibiotic from Bacillus Subtilis , on the Yeast Saccharomyces Cerevisiae : Modifications of Membrane Permeability and Lipid Composition Nov

The action of iturin A on non-growingcells of Saccharomycescerevisiae was tested. This antibiotic gave important modifications in the membranepermeability which permitted nucleotides, proteins, polysaccharides and lipids to escape from cells. The lipid content of cells was strongly disturbed; the level of phospholipids, essentially phosphatidylcholine… CONTINUE READING
