Divergent Roles for cAMP-PKA Signaling in the Regulation of Filamentous Growth in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Saccharomyces bayanus

Journal Article G3 (Bethesda, Md.) · November 2018 The cyclic AMP - Protein Kinase A (cAMP-PKA) pathway is an evolutionarily conserved eukaryotic signaling network that is essential for growth and development. In the fungi, cAMP-PKA signaling plays a critical role in regulating cellular physiology and morp ... Full text Open Access Cite

Glucose repression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Journal Article FEMS Yeast Research · September 2015 Full text Cite

The genetic architecture of biofilm formation in a clinical isolate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Journal Article Genetics · February 2013 Biofilms are microbial communities that form on surfaces. They are the primary form of microbial growth in nature and can have detrimental impacts on human health. Some strains of the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae form colony biofilms, and there i ... Full text Link to item Cite

Pleiotropic signaling pathways orchestrate yeast development.

Journal Article Curr Opin Microbiol · December 2011 Developmental phenotypes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and related yeasts include responses such as filamentous growth, sporulation, and the formation of biofilms and complex colonies. These developmental phenotypes are regulated by evolutionarily conserved, ... Full text Link to item Cite

Outcrossing, mitotic recombination, and life-history trade-offs shape genome evolution in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Journal Article Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A · February 1, 2011 We carried out a population genomic survey of Saccharomyces cerevisiae diploid isolates and find that many budding yeast strains have high levels of genomic heterozygosity, much of which is likely due to outcrossing. We demonstrate that variation in hetero ... Full text Link to item Cite
