Schematic diagram of the life cycle of Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Cell cycle and budding

Haploid and diploid each proliferate by budding.Although it is often present in diploid under normal conditions, ploid is often used in genetic analysis.When growing in a favorable environmentCell cycleIt takes about 2 hours to go around.

Budding occurs in conjunction with the cell cycle.Mother cellからBuddingComingDaughter cellsGradually grows, and when the bud becomes the same size as the original cell, it divides and divides into two cells.Budding is asexual and corresponds to mitosis in multicellular organisms.

Where the budding occurredBudding marks Called (bud scar), budding does not occur again from here.In addition, the budding scar does not disappear until sporulation and mating, indicating the number of cell divisions.

Gender and junction

For haploid a cellと Alpha cellsTwo typessex(Joined typeIs called) exists. a cells and α cells do not join. a-cell and α-cell have unique characteristics of a-factor and α-factor, respectively.hormone(Pheromone) Is secreted, and the pheromones of the other are close enough to each other.Cell membraneupperReceptorWhen sensed with, it stops normal growthJoinTo start.Cells grow in the direction of each other, cell membranes of each other, and thenNuclearFuse to form diploid cells.

The mating type is determined by the MAT gene. There are two types of MAT genes, MAT a and MAT α, each of which corresponds to a mating type.Also these areHomeoboxEncodes a protein containing.Wild yeast haploid cells MAT each time they bud LocusChanges the gene in the daughter cell, which changes the mating type of the daughter cell.HomotarismIt has a life cycle called.The conjugated form of haploid cells in laboratory strains commonly used in biological studies remains unchanged no matter how many times they bud.Heterotalism(Self-incompatibility) Called.

Spore formation and pseudohyphae

When diploid cells are depleted of nitrogen sources,MeiosisStartsporeTo form. Two spores of type a and two of type α are formed inside the cell.In the state of spores, it is resistant to the harsh environment, and when the environment improves, it germinates, and as a haploid, it starts to proliferate again by budding.It should be noted that this endospore is regarded as an ascomycete and the cell itself, which is the basis for making this organism an ascomycete.

Both haploid and diploid have an egg shape, so-called yeast type, but the cells grow long under certain conditions of oligotrophic conditions.False hyphaeIt takes a form called, and opens to a wider range in search of nutrition.

Cell structure

The intracellular structure of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is generally common to eukaryotes.細胞See also.

Haploid cells have an oval shape (yeast type) with a major axis of about 5 μm, and diploid cells are slightly larger and have a lemon shape with both ends slightly pointed.It is the outermost layer that determines the shape of the cellCell wallIs.Cell wall is a high molecular weight polysaccharideGlucan, Is the main component.Just below thatCell membraneThere are pheromone receptors and variousTransporterIs working.

NuclearThe diameter of is about 1 μm,Nuclear membrane TheCell cycleThe point that it does not disappear throughLaminIt differs from mammalian cells and the like in that there is no backing structure.Endoplasmic reticulumIn addition to those continuous with the nuclear envelope, a network of networks exists in the surface layer just below the cell membrane.Golgi bodyIs functionally differentiated into cis, midial, and trans, but they are not lamellar and are dispersed in cells.Vacuole TheLysosomeIt has the same function and occupies a large space (about 1-3 μm in diameter) in the cell.The Golgi apparatus is earlyEndosome, The presence of anaphase endosomes is also known.Early endosomes mediate the flow of material between vacuoles, between cell membranes and vacuoles.Mitochondria,PeroxisomeIs always present and develops according to the nutritional status of the carbon source.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a useful microorganism

2000 BCpreviousMesopotamiaThen, bread was already made using baker's yeast.Saccharomyces cerevisiae1500 BCThere is a record from around that time.In Japan, sake yeast has been used together with Aspergillus in brewing for a long time.Saccharomyces cerevisiae is still indispensable in the fermentation industry and food industry.

Baker's yeast,Sake yeast,beeryeast,WineYeast is basicallyS. cerevisiae It is said that the difference between the genomes of sake yeast and the laboratory strain is about 1%.However, for each practical yeast, a strain suitable for each application has been selected, and exhibits characteristics not found in laboratory strains, such as growth even at a high ethanol concentration.In the case of brewer's yeast and wine yeast saccharomyces In some cases, another species of yeast of the genus is used.

Saccharomyces cerevisiaeAnaerobic breathingAs many other organismsLactic acid fermentationWithout doingAlcohol fermentationI do.This is budding yeastPyruvic acid decarboxylaseContains a special enzyme calledPyruvate dehydrogenase complexThis is because it has (EC, EC, EC trienzyme complex).Pyruvate AcetaldehydeAnd that isAlcohol dehydrogenaseByethanolIs converted to.

Saccharomyces cerevisiaePyruvate dehydrogenase(EC ofCofactorIsThiamin(Vitamin B1) can be synthesized by itself, and thiamine present in the medium can be absorbed and accumulated in cells.Some species can accumulate 10% of their dry weight of thiamine[3].

Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model for eukaryotic cells

Saccharomyces cerevisiae in various research areasEukaryotic cells OfModel organismIt is used as.With budding yeastHuman capitalAlthough it is difficult to find the commonality of life phenomena from the outside, the basic molecular mechanism of life phenomena is surprisingly preserved.By studying Saccharomyces cerevisiae, we can learn about the basic properties of eukaryotic cells, and it may be more accurate to recognize that eukaryotic cells include both humans and plants.That is, those molecular mechanisms revealed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae can be applied to almost any eukaryote.

Advantages as a model organism

  1. cheapCulture mediumCan be grown in a short generation time.
  2. Because a large number of uniform cell populations can be preparedBiochemistrySuitable for target analysis.
  3. It has characteristics suitable for genetic analysis, including the stable existence of haploid and diploid generations.Especially the former is a recessive mutationPhenotypeIt is important because it is easy to find out.
  4. Genome size is 1200 millionbp250/1 of humans,E. coliIt is as small as 4 times.
  5. Like gene disruption due to high homologous recombination efficiencygenomeMany useful molecular biology methods have been accumulated, including the development of editing methods for.

The characteristics as a model of systems biology will be described later.

Research example

Saccharomyces cerevisiae began to be used as an experimental material in the 1950s, but at that timeCentral dogmaIn research, it grows fasterPhage,E. coliWas heavily used. From the mid-1970s, molecular biology began to shift to eukaryotic research, and budding yeast began to attract attention as a model organism.

Leland HartwellHas been a budding yeast since the mid-1960sMutantI had begun a visionary cell cycle study using.Saccharomyces cerevisiaeMutagenProcess withCell cycleStops temperature sensitivelyMutant strainWas acquired in large numbers.From that analysis, we derived the idea of ​​a cell cycle checkpoint and clarified the genes involved in cell cycle control.With this discovery, Hartwell2001 ToNobel Prize in Physiology or MedicineHas been awarded.Many of the molecular mechanisms of cell cycle control have been clarified in studies using Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which has led to the development of related fields such as cytoskeleton and cell polarity.

Even in Saccharomyces cerevisiaePrionThere is a protein that behaves like this, and the molecular mechanism of prion infection has been analyzed.

From the analysis of mutant strains that are defective in the mating process of Saccharomyces cerevisiaeG protein-coupled receptorからMAP kinaseBasic to eukaryotic cells, which leads to gene expression regulation through the cascade ofSignal transductionThe route has been clarified.

ChromosomeIn the study, yeast origin of replication and centromeres,TelomereThe artificial chromosome (YAC) that connects these is a long genomic fragment.vectorIt is applied as.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model of systems biology

Saccharomyces cerevisiae S288C straingenomeAll ofNucleotide sequenceBut,1996 Announced by an international team organized by the United States, Europe and Japan for the first time as a eukaryote[4]..16 at the beginning of the announcementChromosomeIt was expected that there would be a gene encoding 5885 proteins above, but as of July 2003, it has been revised to 7 due to various subsequent review work.[5].

Taking this as an opportunity, unlike the conventional position of analyzing individual genes and proteins, gene expression in the entire cell (Microarray, SAGE method), protein amount (Proteome) Has arisen, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been actively used as a model for developing new methodologies that should be called system biology.In addition, a collection of strains in which each gene is disrupted has been created, and research is underway to analyze various phenotypes for them.Besides, the interaction between all proteinsTwo-hybrid methodFor all proteinsGreen fluorescent protein (GFP) is fused and its localization is analyzed.

It seems that it was important that the background to this situation was that there was a large amount of conventional knowledge about individual factors and that the database that described them was well-developed.Attention is being paid to what kind of development these comprehensive methodologies will bring about in the future.


If the immune system is healthy, budding yeast will not settle in the body and show pathogenicity,Antibacterial drugIt has been reported that Saccharomyces cerevisiae may develop auto brewery syndrome in which budding yeast colonizes the digestive organs and produces ethyl alcohol in the body when the intestinal flora is out of balance.[6][7].
