Yeast as a model to study mitochondrial mechanisms in ageing.


Despite the fact that ageing necessarily displays unique aspects in a single-cell organism, yeast, in particular Saccharomyces cerevisiae, are useful as model organisms to study ageing. Here we review mitochondrial characteristics involved in yeast longevity, including biogenesis, autophagy, respiration and oxidative phosphorylation, nutrient sensing… (More)
