Algology Mycology and Protozoology Abstracts (Microbiology C)

 
 
For the benefit of researchers working with algae, fungi, protozoa, or lichens, this journal separates out all the relevant studies in the literature and organizes them in one source for easy reference. The scope of coverage includes reproduction, growth, life cycles, biochemistry, genetics, and infection and immunity in man, other animals, and plants. Previous issues have summarized articles on vaccine development for malaria ... environmental impact of algal blooms genetic engineering of Saccharomyces ... Pneumocystis pneumonia in AIDS ... bioenergetics of flagellar motility, and other current topics. With subsection abstracts arranged taxonomically or easy location of articles relevant to specific microorganisms, Algology, Mycology and Protozoology is a convenient and time- saving resource for microbiologists as well as research professionals in immunology, pathology, environmental research, toxicology, and other related fields.

    Major areas of coverage include:
    • Taxonomy, Structure, and Function
    • Growth, Development, and Life Cycles

    Abstract
    Pichia stipitis is widely studied for its capacity to ferment d-xylose to ethanol. Strain improvement has been facilitated by recent completion of the P. stipitis genome. P. stipitis uses CUG to code for serine rather than leucine, as is the case for the universal genetic code thereby limiting the availability of heterologous drug resistance markers for transformation. Development of a modified selectable marker for resistance to bleomycin (Sh ble) and efficient excision of the marker after integration (loxP/Cre) should facilitate functional genomics and metabolic engineering in this yeast. The Sh ble marker did not code for an active protein in P. stipitis until four CUG codons were mutagenized to TTG, which is properly translated as leucine in yeasts that use the alternative yeast nuclear genetic code. The 18 CTG codons in Cre were mutagenized in a similar manner and the system was used to delete XYL2. The resulting xyl2 Delta mutant did not use xylose as a carbon source.
