The ultrastructure of the cell surface and plasma membrane of exponential and stationary phase cells of Schizosaccharomyces pombe, grown in different media
For the first time the dynamic surface structures could be directly analyzed by freeze drying in the scanning electron microscope and in thin section of freeze substituted samples and reveal hair-like structures on the surface of yeast cells.
The H+-Translocating ATPase in Vacuolar Membranes of Neurospora Crassa
In mid-logarithmic phase, cells of Neurospora crassa contain numerous small vacuoles, about the size of mitochondrial, which presumably also function like animal cell lysosomes.
Effect of Aculeacin A, a Wall‐Active Antibiotic, on Synthesis of the Yeast Cell Wall
A wall‐active, amphophilic antibiotic aculeacin A significantly but incompletely inhibited in vitro the activity of β‐(1,3)glucan synthase prepared from highly susceptible yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Candida albicans, suggesting selectivity of its action in synthesis of the yeast cell wall.
