This study demonstrates for the first time, that Dap1 mediates a functional link between iron homeostasis and azole resistance in Candida glabrata. The results suggest a mechanism by which iron depletion results in dysfunction of Dap1, which in turn impairs Erg11 activity, leading to increased azole susceptibility in C. glabrata.
In this work, the authors elucidated the role of mitochondria in pseudohyphal growth induced by one of the fusel alcohols – butanol. It was found that mitochondria play a signalling role in this process rather than simply providing energy. This finding is one of the very few experimentally confirmed links between mitochondria transmebrane potential and cell cycle progression.
Hyung Ah Kang (Editor): “This is an excellent case study in applying cutting edge technology to the oldest yeast biotechnological process”
The authors reveal the metabolic footprints and fermentation profiles of commercial wine yeast strains in Chardonnay. Group of strains with related phenotypes were found and these similarities can be linked to genomic similarities, providing insight into the diversity of this unique class of industrial strains.
