Natural habitats of some microorganisms may fluctuate erratically, whereas others, which are more predictable, offer the opportunity to prepare in advance for the next environmental change. In analogy to classical Pavlovian conditioning, microorganisms may have evolved to anticipate environmental stimuli by adapting to their temporal order of appearance. Here we present evidence for environmental change anticipation in two model microorganisms, Escherichia coli and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We s ...[more]
Project description:MNase-seq Experiments from Calorie Restricted and Non-Restricted Yeast from WT, ISW2DEL and ISW2K215R strains We used MNase-seq to study genome-wide nucleosome positions under Calorie Restricted and Non-restricted Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Project description:In this study we investigated the transcriptional response of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to potassium starvation. To this end yeast cells were grown for 60 min in media without potassium or in media with a standard potassium concnetration (50 mM KCl). Using Serial Analysis of Gene Expression (SAGE)-tag sequencing the effect of potassium starvation on the transcriptome was determined. 4 samples of cells grown in media without potassium and 4 samples of cells grown in the presence of potassium were analyzed.
Project description:This project aims to identify novel RNA binding proteins in the baker's yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Since interactions between RNAs and proteins may be transient, yeast cells were crosslinked with UV light at 254 nm which promotes the covalent link between proteins and RNAs. After this, polyadenylated mRNAs were purified via oligo(dT) coupled to magentic beads under stringet conditions. Finally, samples were subjected to mass spectrometry analysis. To rule out the possibility of RNA-independent binding we also analysed other samples: i) samples digested with RNase one; ii) samples where we performed competition assays with polyadenylic acid.
Project description:RNA-seq Experiments from Calorie Restricted and Non-Restricted WT Yeast We used RNA-seq to study transcriptome changes under Calorie Restricted and Non-restricted Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Project description:In this study we investigate the molecular physiology of the main S. cerevisiae commercial strain (PE-2) used on Brazilian bioethanol process under two distinct conditions: typical (TF) and flocculated (co-aggregated - FL) fermentation. Transcriptional machinery of PE-2 was assessed by high throughput sequencing-based methods (RNA-seq) during industrial fed-batch fermentations. Data from comparative analysis revealed distinct transcriptional profiles among conditions, characterized mainly by a deep gene repression on FL process. We investigated the transcriptional changes in S. cerevisiae PE-2 strain under industrial fermentation conditions using RNA-seq protocols. We analyzed 13 fermentation time-points where 6 time-points on typical fermentation conditions (TF) and 7 time-points on flocculate conditions(FL). The raw data have been submitted to SRA as SRP014755
