Aging Research in Yeast by Michael Breitenbach, S. Michal Jazwinski, Peter Laun

By Michael Breitenbach, S. Michal Jazwinski, Peter Laun

This quantity comprises contributions through the best specialists within the box of yeast getting older. Budding yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and different fungal organisms supply types for getting older examine which are appropriate to organismic getting older and to the getting older strategies happening within the human physique. Replicative getting older, within which simply the mum cellphone a long time whereas the daughter telephone resets the clock to 0 is a version for the getting older of stem cellphone populations in people, whereas chronological getting older (measured by means of survival in desk bound part) is a version for the getting older techniques in postmitotic cells (for example, neurons of the brain). such a lot mechanisms of getting older are studied in yeast. between them, this booklet discusses: mitochondrial theories of getting older, emphasizing oxidative rigidity and retrograde responses; the function of autophagy and mitophagy; the connection of apoptosis to getting older procedures; the function of uneven segregation of wear and tear in replicative getting older; the function of replication pressure; and the function of the cytoskeleton in getting older. sleek equipment of yeast genetics and genomics are defined that may be used to go looking for aging-specific capabilities in a genome-wide independent type. The similarities within the pathology of senescence (studied in yeast) and of melanoma cells, together with genome instability, are examined.

Sample text

This molecule has some role in defence against H2 O2 since mutants lacking the last gene (ALO1) in the biosynthetic pathway are sensitive to the ROS and over-expression of ALO1 increases resistance to H2 O2 (Huh et al. 1998). Yeast also lacks tocopherols found in higher eukaryotes, and a likely contender for the main lipid-soluble antioxidant is ubiquinol (coenzyme Q) – the yeast version has a side chain with six isoprenoid residues rather than the ten found in humans. Mutation of any of the genes in the coenzyme Q biosynthetic pathway leads to the respiratory petite phenotype as expected for a disruption of respiration.

B The isocitrate dehydrogenase reaction is the only known pathway of NADPH regeneration in the peroxisome. c Miscellaneous enzymes that may be involved in oxidative stress defence in the peroxisome. d Schematic of the glutathione system in the peroxisome. Question marks denote as yet unidentified enzymes. Yeast genes encoding the enzymes are in bold italics lack the selenocysteine group found at the catalytic site in other Gpxs, but all have peroxidase activity (Inoue et al. 1999), in fact they are unusual in that they are probably lipid hydroperoxide peroxidases, they are monomeric, can associate with membranes and are capable of reducing lipid hydroperoxides in membranes (Avery and Avery 2001).

1998; Flattery-O’Brien et al. 1993; Jamieson 1992; Turton et al. 1997) and increases cell survival in a subsequent challenge. The adaptive response elicited by a particular ROS can in some cases confer increased resistance to another form of ROS. For example, adaptation to H2 O2 protects against most other ROS (Asad et al. 1997; Christman et al. 1985; Dukan and Touati 1996; Nunoshiba et al. 1991). Heat stress causes oxidative stress (Davidson et al. 1996) and stimulates antioxidant defences (Kim et al.
