Real-time Monitoring of Non-specific Toxicity Using a Saccharomyces cerevisiae Reporter System

Abstract

Baker's yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is the simplest and most well-known representative of eukaryotic cells and thus a convenient model organism for evaluating toxic effects in human cells and tissues. Yeast cell sensors are easy to maintain with short generation times, which makes the analytical method of assessing antifungal toxicity cheap and less… (More)
