In the 1970s, hydrocarbon or methanol utilizable yeasts were considered as a material for foods and ethanol production. During the course of studies into the physiology of yeasts, we found that these systems provide a suitable model for the biogenesis and ultrastructure research of microbodies (peroxisomes). Microbodies of hydrocarbon utilizing Candida tropicalis multiply profusely from the preexisting microbody. β oxidation enzymes in the microbody were determined by means of immunoelectron… 
Electron microscopy for ultrastructural analysis and protein localization in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
The goal of this review is to guide researchers that want to investigate a particular process at the ultrastructural level in yeast by aiding in the selection of the most appropriate approach to visualize a specific structure or subcellular compartment.
Quick-Freeze, Deep-Etch Electron Microscopy Reveals the Characteristic Architecture of the Fission Yeast Spore
TLDR
QFDE-EM revealed that the Isp3 layer exists as an interwoven fibrillar layer in the S. pombe spore, and observed that during spore germination, the cell surface changes from a smooth to a dendritic filamentous structure, the latter being characteristic of vegetative cells.
Visualization of Cytokinesis Events in Budding Yeast by Transmission Electron Microscopy.
TLDR
The process of embedding and staining budding yeast cells for transmission electron microscopic analysis of cytokinetic events is described and is an invaluable tool to analyze cell division in yeast cells.
Proteins involved in building, maintaining and remodeling of yeast cell walls
TLDR
The present state of comprehension of the interplay of these proteins in the yeast cell wall is the subject of this article.
Yeast Nanobiotechnology
TLDR
An overview of nanobiotechnological analysis and manipulation techniques that have been particularly applied to yeast cells, as well as non-contact cell manipulation techniques, such as optical, electrical, and magnetic cells manipulation methods are reviewed.
The Cell Biology of Fission Yeast Septation
TLDR
The knowledge of the septum structure in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe is reviewed and of the recent advances in the understanding of the relationship between sePTum biosynthesis and actomyosin ring constriction are reviewed to build a cross-walled septus able to support the high turgor pressure of the cell.
Involvement of a Multidrug Efflux Pump and Alterations in Cell Surface Structure in the Synergistic Antifungal Activity of Nagilactone E and Anethole against Budding Yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
The combination of nagilactone E and anethole can be employed in clinical settings as an antifungal, as well as a food preservative to restrict food spoilage.

Ultrastructure of methanol-utilizing yeast cells: appearance of microbodies in relation to high catalase activity
TLDR
Nine strains of methanol-utilizing yeasts belonging to the genera Candida, Hansenula, Kloeckera, Pichia, and Torulopsis were examined with respect to the interrelationship between their catalase content and ultrastructure and several morphological differences were observed.
Immunoelectron microscopic observation of the behaviors of peroxisomal enzymes inducibly synthesized in an n-alkane-utilizable yeast cell, Candida tropicalis.
We reported that immunoelectron microscopy was an excellent tool for determining the subcellular localization of thiolase isozymes, acetoacetyl-CoA thiolase (T-I) and 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase (T-III)
Transmission and scanning electron microscopic examination of intracellular organelles in freeze-substituted Kloeckera and Saccharomyces cerevisiae Yeast Cells
TLDR
In the cytological analysis of the yeasts, intracellular structures were well preserved by using the freeze-substitution fixation method, and the previous model of a yeast cell was modified.
Cell wall formation in regenerating protoplasts of Schizosaccharomyces pombe: study by high resolution, low voltage scanning electron microscopy.
TLDR
It is suggested that beta-glucan is the main component of the microfibrils and that it plays an important role in the formation of the cell wall in S. pombe.
Three-dimensional analysis of protein aggregate body in Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells.
TLDR
Although PABs could not be separated from the cytoplasm or mitochondria under a confocal fluorescence microscope, 3D reconstruction of serial electron micrographs clearly showed the PAB was an independent structure of varying size and had the shape of an incomplete sphere.
High-pressure freezing is a powerful tool for visualization of Schizosaccharomyces pombe cells: ultra-low temperature and low-voltage scanning electron microscopy and immunoelectron microscopy.
TLDR
It is shown that when high-pressure freezing is combined with ultra-low temperature and low-voltage SEM using the new cryo-system, the Gatan Alto 2500 Cryo Transfer System, fractured and coated yeast samples could be quickly prepared and yielded a fine fracture plane and revealed the ultrastructure of both external and internal cell components.
STUDIES ON THE CYTOLOGICAL STRUCTURE OF YEAST: ELECTRON MICROSCOPY OF THIN SECTIONS
TLDR
The cytoplasmic structures observed in sections of cells grown on Lindegren's presporulation medium are the subject of this paper.
Catalase Activities of Hydrocarbon-utilizing Candida Yeasts
TLDR
Cytochemical studies using 3,3′-diaminobenzidine (DAB) revealed that theCatalase activity was located in microbodies, suggesting that the catalase activities would be related to the hydrocarbon metabolism in the yeasts.
