Lipid synthesis during sporulation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Lipid synthesis was studied in both sporulating (diploid) and nonsporulating (haploid) cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Two phases of lipid synthesis occur in diploid cells transferred to sporulation medium. Phase I, which occurs during the first 12 h of exposure to sporulation medium, was also observed in the haploid strains. Phase II, occurring from the… CONTINUE READING
