Metal cation uptake by yeast: a review (1995)
Journal Article
Blackwell, K. J., Singleton, I., & Tobin, J. M. (1995). Metal cation uptake by yeast: a review. Applied microbiology and biotechnology, 43(4), 579-584. https://doi.org/10.1007/s002530050454

This review addresses metal uptake specifically by yeast. Metal uptake may be passive, active or both, depending on the viability of the biomass, and is influenced by a number of environmental and experimental factors. Uptake is typically accompanied...

Biosynthesis of the glycolipid anchor of lipophosphoglycan and the structurally related glycoinositolphospholipids from Leishmania major (1995)
Journal Article
Proudfoot, L., Schneider, P., Ferguson, M. A. J., & McConville, M. J. (1995). Biosynthesis of the glycolipid anchor of lipophosphoglycan and the structurally related glycoinositolphospholipids from Leishmania major. The biochemical journal, 308(1), 45-55. https://doi.org/10.1042/bj3080045

The major macromolecule on the surface of the protozoan parasite Leishmania major is a lipophosphoglycan (LPG) which contains a glycosylphosphatidylinositol glycolipid anchor. This parasite also synthesizes a complex family of abundant low-molecular-...

Considerations on the use of commercially available yeast biomass for the treatment of metal-containing effluents (1995)
Journal Article
Simmons, P., Tobin, J. M., & Singleton, I. (1995). Considerations on the use of commercially available yeast biomass for the treatment of metal-containing effluents. Journal of industrial microbiology, 14(3-4), 240-246. doi:10.1007/bf01569934

Three strains ofSaccharomyces cerevisiae and one strain of aCandida sp. obtained from different industrial sources were screened for uptake of silver and copper. Considerable differences in metal uptake capacities were found between the different str...
