Candida albicans Mitochondrial Protein Import Assay
Authors:  Victoria L Hewitt, Trevor Lithgow and Ana Traven, date: 02/20/2013, view: 4449, Q&A: 0
We have established the use of Candida albicans as a new model system to study mitochondrial biogenesis. This dimorphic yeast provides an excellent system to investigate the coordination of mitochondrial biogenesis with other cellular ...
Preparation of Mitochondria from Candida albicans
Authors:  Victoria L Hewitt, Trevor Lithgow and Ana Traven, date: 02/20/2013, view: 4657, Q&A: 0
Based on the methods of (Daum et al., 1982) and (Hewitt et al., 2012), we have established the use of Candida albicans as a new model system to study mitochondrial biogenesis. This dimorphic yeast provides an excellent ...
