- Global changes in gene expression associated with phenotypic switching of wild yeastVratislav Stovícek
Department of Genetics and Microbiology, Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague, Vinicna 5, 128 44 Prague 2, Czech Republic
BMC Genomics 15:136. 2014..The resulting domesticated strains switch off certain protective mechanisms and form smooth colonies that resemble those of common laboratory strains...
- Flo11p, drug efflux pumps, and the extracellular matrix cooperate to form biofilm yeast coloniesLibuse Vachova
Institute of Microbiology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, v v i, 142 20 Prague, Czech Republic
J Cell Biol 194:679-87. 2011..The two mechanisms act in concert during colony development, allowing growth of new cell generations in a well-protected internal cavity of the colony. Colony architecture is strengthened by intercellular fiber connections...
- Architecture of developing multicellular yeast colony: spatio-temporal expression of Ato1p ammonium exporterLibuse Vachova
Institute of Microbiology AS CR, v v i, Videnska 1083, 142 20 Prague 4, Czech Republic
Environ Microbiol 11:1866-77. 2009..We show that neighbouring microcolonies coordinate production of Ato1p-GFP. Ato1p itself appears synchronously in cells, which do not originate from the same ancestor, but occupy specific position within the colony...
- Ato protein interactions in yeast plasma membrane revealed by fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM)Dita Strachotová
Institute of Microbiology of the ASCR, Prague 4, Czech Republic
Biochim Biophys Acta 1818:2126-34. 2012..In addition, using specially prepared strains, we were able to detect an interaction between molecules of the same Ato protein, namely Ato1p-Ato1p and Ato3p-Ato3p, but not Ato2p-Ato2p...
- Rapidly developing yeast microcolonies differentiate in a similar way to aging giant coloniesLibuse Vachova
Institute of Microbiology of the ASCR, v v i, 142 20 Prague 4, Czech Republic
Oxid Med Cell Longev 2013:102485. 2013..These findings show that colony age per se is not crucial for colony differentiation. ..
