Telomeres, the eukaryotic chromosomes ends, preserve genome stability and help duplicate the genome. They play important roles in aging and cancer. The author Martin Kupiec summarizes our knowledge on the telomeres of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a widely used model organism.
Featured Open Access Article
This review describes the main sensing mechanisms and signaling pathways that cells of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae use to adjust their metabolism and growth to the availability of specific nutrients, like fermentable sugars, nitrogen sources, and phosphate.
New Thematic Issue
Yeast organisms have had a long history of success to address fundamental cell biological problems. Editors Sophie Martin, Martin Kupiec and Jure Piskur have selected and edited nine reviews that cover a broad range of fields including DNA structure, chromosome biology, cellular organization and physiology.
