 Yeast genetics and molecular biology

The awesome power of yeast genetics is partially due to the ability to quickly map a phenotype-producing gene to a region of the S. cerevisiae genome. For the past two decades S. cerevisiae has been the model system for much of molecular genetic research because the basic cellular mechanics of replication, recombination, cell division and metabolism are generally conserved between yeast and larger eukaryotes, including mammals.

Molecular genetics is the field of biology and genetics that studies the structure and function of genes at a molecular level. The study of chromosomes and gene expression of an organism can give insight into heredity, genetic variation, and mutations.

Cellular Ageing

Aging is not typically measured by time in yeast, but rather by the number of divisions an individual cell completes before it dies. An individual cell is easy to follow from birth to death because yeast divides asymmetrically by budding off new daughters. Unlike their mothers, the daughters start from scratch, having the potential for a full life span. Thus, individual cells are mortal, while the yeast population is immortal. The probability that a cell will continue dividing decreases exponentially as a function of the number of completed divisions. Thus, mortality rate increases exponentially with age. However, it plateaus at older ages in similarity to what has been observed in other species. Yeasts undergo a variety of changes as they age, and some of these are clearly detrimental. In view of this, it is reasonable to speak of an aging process. In practical terms, yeast life span is measured by observing individual cells periodically under a microscope and removing buds with a micro-manipulator.

Yeast Apoptosis:  

Apoptosis is an evolutionally conserved cell suicide program used by an organism to selectively eliminate dangerous, superfluous, or damaged cells. The phenomenon of yeast cells undergoing apoptosis has long been controversial, in part because of doubts of whether cell suicide could constitute an evolutionary advantage for unicellular organisms.

Fermentation and biotechnology

Humans have taken advantage of the metabolism in a tiny fungus called yeast to create beer and wine from grains and fruits. Yeast Biotechnology can be defined as the application of yeast to the development of industrial products and processes.

  • Yeast in wine making: As the different players in the wine trade have various requirements for the quality of their finished products, there is even more ongoing research on the role of yeasts in wine-making than in bread-making. The aim is to isolate strains involved in the aromatic characteristics of wine, particularly those responsible for its specific local character.
  • Yeast in bread making: Bread consumption has become more international. Researchers thus work on strains that develop the most attractive aromatic ranges. And with current progress made in nutrition, research strives to improve the bioavailability of vitamins and minerals naturally present in bread through yeasts.
  • Yeast in human nutrition: Nutritional yeast, selected for its nutritive values, can be ideal for vegetarian diets, but also very useful for healthy hair, nails and skin. Enriched with vitamin B or minerals (selenium, chromium, zinc, copper or molybdene), yeast can also compensate for nutritional deficiencies.
  • Yeast strains for chocolate production:  The cocoa beans are surrounded by a gooey pulp, which is fermented by yeasts and bacteria. Any species in the environment can get into the mix, leaving little control over the ultimate flavour. But by out competing other microbes, robust yeast strains could prevent such infelicitous variability in taste.
  • Yeast in Probiotics: Yeast is used in probiotic supplements to maintain and restore the natural flora in the G.I tract. This yeast has been shown to reduce the symptoms of acute diarrhoea, reduce the chances of infection by Clostridium difficle, reduce the incidence of antibiotic-, traveler’s- and HIV/AIDS- associated diarrhoeas.

Bioenergy and Biofuels:

Research is currently focusing on the transformation of new raw materials into biofuels. To date, yeast is the best micro-organism to produce alcoholic fermentation from simple sugars. Humans, with centuries of experience in this field in baking, wine-making or brewing, have very effective strains available to them. They are now used to make biofuels from renewable agricultural products - beet, sugar cane, molasses and other amylased products. Research is currently focusing on the transformation of new raw materials into biofuels.

Industrial yeast strain improvement

There are interesting opportunities to isolate or generate yeast variants that perform better than the currently used strains. Therefore there is the need of different strategies of strain selection and improvement available for both conventional and nonconventional yeasts. Exploiting the existing natural diversity and using techniques such as mutagenesis, protoplast fusion, breeding, genome shuffling and directed evolution to generate artificial diversity, or the use of genetic modification strategies to alter traits in a more targeted way, have led to the selection of superior industrial yeasts. Furthermore, recent technological advances allowed the development of high-throughput techniques, such as ‘global transcription machinery engineering’ (gTME), to induce genetic variation, providing a new source of yeast genetic diversity.

Yeast-based drug discovery

The humanized yeast model has emerged as a powerful tool in large-scale screenings directed to target human proteins. The high degree of cellular processes conservation between the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and higher eukaryotes has made this microorganism a valuable cell model to study the pathobiology of several human diseases.  The yeast target-based approach can be highly useful in the first-line screening of potential active compounds to be tested in more complex cell models.

  • Bio films: The majority of bacteria live not planktonically, but as residents of sessile biofilm communities. The human gastrointestinal (GI) tract encompasses a plethora of nutritional and physicochemical environments, many of which are ideal for biofilm formation and survival. However, little is known of the nature, function, and clinical relevance of these communities.
  • Vaccines: Enolase 1 (Eno1p) of Candida albicans is an immunodominant antigen. However, conventional technologies for preparing an injectable vaccine require purification of the antigenic protein and preparation of an adjuvant. To develop a novel type of oral vaccine against candidiasis, we need to generate cells that display the on their surfaces.

Yeast Bioremediation:

It refers to the bioremediation or biodegradation of contaminants and hazardous pollutants in the environment using yeast. Environment is under great stress due to industrialization and human interfering on the limited natural resources. Bioremediation is an increasingly popular method using microbial strains and their enzymes for degrading waste contaminants such as chlorinated pesticides or other pollutants to protect the environment from pollution. Bioremediation is based on biodegradative processes related to microbial population dynamics in soil or water and its ability to consume xenobiotic as carbon source.

  • Spills during the industrial production process
  •  Disposal of toxic compounds
  • Excessive treatment of agricultural surfaces
  • Phytoremediation
  • Pollution cleaning techniques
  • Contaminated Soil Disposal
  • Waste water Treatment
  • Soil Bio fumigant Treatments for Control Pathogens

Industrial wastes comprise organic compounds such as aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons derived from petroleum, charcoal and wood, as well as natural products, halogenated solvents, pesticides, herbicides and explosives.

Microorganisms (bacteria and yeasts) are subjects of many bioremediation studies, due to their ability of assimilating hydrocarbons. Until now there have been described at least 100 microbial species belonging to 30 genera from which 22 genera of bacteria and approximately 14 genera of yeasts. The way that bacteria act in the biodegradation processes is relatively well known, while there are still many questions concerning the way yeasts participate in the same processes.

Pathogenic Yeast and Food Spoilage

Food spoilage due to bacteria and\or yeast contamination can be a costly problem for the food industry. Recent progress in DNA analysis has enabled rapid, accurate yeast identification methods to be developed. Armed with this precision identification it is possible to predict and eliminate the source of contamination. Some yeast are psychrophilic, and so they can grow at relatively low temperatures. In fact, the fermentation of wine and beer is often carried out at temperatures near 40°F. Because some kinds are psychrophiles, they can create a spoilage problem in meat coolers and other refrigerated storage areas. Because they can grow under conditions of high salt or sugar content, they can cause the spoilage of certain foods in which bacteria would not grow. Foods produced by the bacterial fermentation process, such as pickles and sauerkraut, can also be spoiled by yeasts which interfere with the normal fermentative process. While certain yeasts are pathogenic, yeast infections are much less common than bacterial infections.  Foodborne illness continues to be an urgent issue across the globe. The epidemiology of foodborne disease is changing. New pathogens have emerged, and some have spread worldwide. These pathogens cause millions of cases of sporadic illness and chronic diseases, as well as large and challenging outbreaks over many states and nations.

Yeast Stress and its Response:

Every cell has developed mechanisms to respond to changes in its environment and to adapt its growth and metabolism to unfavourable conditions. The unicellular eukaryote yeast has long proven as a particularly useful model system for the analysis of cellular stress responses, and the completion of the yeast genome sequence has only added to its power.

Yeast infections:

Most yeast infections are caused by a type of yeast called Candida albicans. Yeast is a fungus that normally lives in the vagina in small numbers. A vaginal yeast infection means that too many yeast cells are growing in the vagina. These infections are very common. When something happens to change the balance of these organisms, yeast can grow too much and cause symptoms. Vaginal yeast infections aren’t considered a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Sexual contact can spread it, but women who aren’t sexually active can also get them. Once you get a yeast infection, you’re also more likely to get another one.

  • Candida Infection of the Bloodstream – Candidemia: Candida infection can happen almost any part of your body. Usually it develops on mucous membranes (in the mouth, genitals etc.) but the infection can also be in your bloodstream. When Candida is in your blood stream, the condition is called Candidemia. Candida infection can spread from your blood stream to other parts of your body (such as your eyes, kidney, liver and brain). If this happens, it is called Invasive Candidemia. People who are healthy do not usually get Candidemia.
  • Genital/Vulvovaginal Candidiasis (VVC): Most yeast infections are caused by a type of yeast called Candida albicans. Yeast is a fungus that normally lives in the vagina in small numbers. A vaginal yeast infection means that too many yeast cells are growing in the vagina. These infections are very common. When something happens to change the balance of these organisms, yeast can grow too much and cause symptoms. Vaginal yeast infections aren’t considered a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Sexual contact can spread it, but women who aren’t sexually active can also get them.
  • Invasive Candidiasis: Invasive candidiasis is an infection caused by a yeast (a type of fungus) called Candida.  Unlike Candida infections in the mouth and throat (also called “thrush”) or vaginal “yeast infections,” invasive candidiasis is a serious infection that can affect the blood, heart, brain, eyes, bones, and other parts of the body. Candidemia, a bloodstream infection with Candida, is a common infection in hospitalized patients.
  • Oral Thrush: Oral thrush — also called oral candidiasis (kan-dih-DIE-uh-sis) — is a condition in which the fungus Candida albicans accumulates on the lining of your mouth. Candida is a normal organism in your mouth, but sometimes it can overgrow and cause symptoms. Oral thrush causes creamy white lesions, usually on your tongue or inner cheeks. Sometimes oral thrush may spread to the roof of your mouth, your gums or tonsils, or the back of your throat.
  • Oropharyngeal/Esophageal Candidiasis ("Thrush"): Candidiasis of the mouth and throat, also known as “thrush" or oropharyngeal candidiasis, is a fungal infection that occurs when there is overgrowth of a yeast called Candida. Candida yeasts normally live on the skin or mucous membranes in small amounts. However, if the environment inside the mouth or throat becomes imbalanced, the yeasts can multiply and cause symptoms. Candida overgrowth can also develop in the esophagus, and this is called Candida esophagitis, or esophageal candidiasis.
  • Tinea Versicolor: Also called pityriasis versicolor. We all have yeast living on our skin. When the yeast grows out of control, a person can get a skin disease called tinea versicolor. Many people get tinea versicolor. It is one of the most common skin diseases in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. People who live in tropical areas may have tinea versicolor year-round.

Yeast nuclear RNA processing

Nuclear RNA processing requires dynamic and intricately regulated machinery composed of multiple enzymes and their cofactors. Much progress has been made recently in describing the 3D structure of many elements of the nuclear degradation machinery and its cofactors. Similarly, the regulatory mechanisms that govern RNA processing are gradually coming into focus. Such advances invariably generate many new questions, which we highlight in this Yeast Congress 2017.

  • The conversion of pre-RNAs to functional RNAs

Yeast Epigenetics:

Yeast provides a flexible and rapid genetic system for studying cellular events. With an approximate generation time of 90 min, colonies containing millions of cells are produced after just 2 d of growth. In addition, yeast can propagate in both haploid and diploid forms, greatly facilitating genetic analysis. Like bacteria, haploid yeast cells can be mutated to produce specific nutritional requirements or auxotrophic genetic phenotypes, and recessive lethal mutations can either be maintained in haploids as conditional lethal alleles (e.g., temperature-sensitive mutants), or in hetero zygotic diploids, which carry both wild-type and mutant alleles.

Extremely useful is the efficient homologous recombination system of budding yeast, which allows the alteration of any chosen chromosomal sequence at will. In addition, portions of chromosomes can be manipulated and reintroduced on plasmids that are stably maintained through cell division, thanks to short sequences that provide centromere and replication origin function. Large linear plasmids, or minichromosomes, which carry telomeric repeats to cap their ends, also propagate stably in yeast. Yeast also has a unique advantage in the genetic analysis of histones and their roles in gene regulation.
