    High Resolution Respirometry in Candida albicans
    Authors:  Lucian Duvenage, Carol A. Munro and Campbell W. Gourlay, date: 09/05/2019, view: 1882, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Many Candida species, such as the opportunistic human pathogen Candida albicans, are Crabtree-Negative yeasts and are therefore highly dependent on the energy generated through oxidative phosphorylation. Respiration control is linked to a range of aspects of C. albicans cell physiology that appear to be important for ...
    A Highly Efficient Method for Measuring Oxygen Consumption Rate in Fusarium graminearum
    Authors:  Daniel Gebhard, Jakob Bönnighausen, Jörg Bergemann, Wilhelm Schäfer and Jörg Bormann, date: 08/05/2016, view: 7275, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The filamentous ascomycete Fusarium graminearum is the causal agent of Fusarium head blight, a devastating disease of cereals with a worldwide distribution. Fusarium graminearum infections result in a quantitative yield reduction by impairing the growth of the kernels, and a qualitative reduction by poisoning the ...
    Quantification of Respiratory Activity in Biofilms
    Authors:  Cláudia N. H. Marques and Scott A. Craver, date: 09/20/2015, view: 7611, Q&A: 1
    [Abstract] Bacteria live mostly as biofilms, not as planktonic cell populations. Bacterial cells living as biofilms are known to be in different physiological status. Persister cells are one of such physiological conditions and they are recognized as to be a stochastically produced sub-population of non-growing bacterial cells. The following protocol ...
