Lipid inclusions in the vacuoles of Saccharomyces cerevisiae

, : Lipid inclusions in the vacuoles of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Archiv für Mikrobiologie 60(4): 340-347

Spherical or elongated phospholipid inclusions were observed in vacuoles of S. cerevisiae. The periodicity of these lipid inclusions is 56 A and the materialof which they are composed appears to be derived from spherosomes. The spherosomes arise in the cytoplasm, penetrate the tonoplast, and discharge their contents into the vacuole. It is postulated that the phospholipid matrix of the spherosome then aggregates to produce the myelin-like inclusions. Tween 80 and ergosterol together in the growth medium do not prevent the formation of the lipid inclusions.

We have studied the initial effects of adenovirus E1A expression on the retinoblastoma (RB) gene product in normal quiescent cells. Although binding of the E1A products to pRB could, in theory, make pRB phosphorylation unnecessary for cell cycle p...
