Kang WY, et al. (2012) Stress adaptation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae as monitored via metabolites using two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy. FEMS Yeast Res 12(5):608-16
Abstract: Many studies on yeast metabolism are focused on its response to specific stress conditions because the results can be extended to the human medical issues. Most of those works have been accomplished through functional genomics studies. However, these changes may not show a linear correlation with protein or metabolite levels. For many organisms including yeast, the number of metabolites is far fewer than that of genes or gene products. Thus, metabolic profiling can provide a simpler yet efficient snapshot of the system's physiology. Metabolites of Saccharomyces cerevisiae under various stresses were analyzed and compared with those under the normal, unstressed growth conditions by two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy. At least 31 metabolites were identified for most of the samples. The levels of many identified metabolites showed significant increase or decrease depending on the nature of the stress. The statistical analysis produced a holistic view: different stresses were clustered and isolated from one another with the exception of high pH, heat, and oxidative stresses. This work could provide a link between the metabolite profiles and mRNA or protein profiles under representative and well-studied stress conditions.CI - (c) 2012 Federation of European Microbiological Societies.
