The authors review the use of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model organism to get new insights into p53 and BRCA1/2 function for cancer research and diagnosis.
Although considered unicellular, cells of baker yeast are able to differentiate within multicellular populations and to form different types of non-dividing cells (elders) with different properties and functions.
Latest Thematic Issue
In this special issue Austen R. Ganley and Dina Petranovic have collected and edited 16 Mini Reviews that provide an overview of research in the field of yeast cell aging and death.
Ganley and Kobayashi discuss recent evidence that supports a fundamental role for instability of the ribosomal DNA repeats in yeast replicative aging and offers a revised model for this rDNA theory of aging.
Yeast is a widely used model system that has come to be utilized as an important aging model and here Mirisola et al. review some of the methodology used to study aging in yeast.
