    Assaying Glycogen and Trehalose in Yeast
    Authors:  Yuping Chen and Bruce Futcher, date: 07/05/2017, view: 4239, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Organisms store carbohydrates in several forms. In yeast, carbohydrates are stored in glycogen (a multi-branched polysaccharide) and in trehalose (a disaccharide). As in other organisms, the amount of stored carbohydrate varies dramatically with physiological state, and accordingly, an assay of stored carbohydrate can help reveal physiological ...
    Extraction and Quantification of Polyphosphate in the Budding Yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
    Authors:  David Canadell, Samuel Bru, Josep Clotet and Joaquín Ariño, date: 07/20/2016, view: 6215, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Inorganic polyphosphate (polyP) is a linear polymer present in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms and made from three to hundreds of orthophosphate residues linked by phosphoanhydride bonds. The biological role of this molecule goes beyond serving as Pi store or energy source to replace ATP. For instance, in yeast polyP levels have been ...
