  • Transcriptional control of hyphal morphogenesis in Candida albicans
    • Authors: Villa S; Hamideh M, Weinstock A, et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTCandida albicans is a multimorphic commensal organism and opportunistic fungal pathogen in humans. A morphological switch between unicellular budding yeast and multicellular filamentous hyphal growth forms plays a vital role in the virulence of C. albicans, and this transition is regulated in response to a range of environmental cues that are encountered in distinct host niches. Many unique transcription factors contribute to the transcriptional regulatory network that integrates these distinct environmental cues and determines which phenotypic state will be expressed. These hyphal morphogenesis regulators have been extensively investigated, and represent an increasingly important focus of study, due to their central role in controlling a key C. albicans virulence attribute. This review provides a succinct summary of the transcriptional regulatory factors and environmental signals that control hyphal morphogenesis in C. albicans.

  • Deletion of the Golgi Ca2+-ATPase PMR1 gene potentiates antifungal effects
           of dodecanol that depend on intracellular Ca2+ accumulation in budding
    • Authors: Oyama M; Tamaki H, Yamaguchi Y, et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTOne strategy for overcoming infectious diseases caused by drug-resistant fungi involves combining drugs rendered inactive by resistance with agents targeting the drug resistance mechanism. The antifungal activity of n-dodecanol disappears as incubation time passes. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, anethole, a principal component of anise oil, prolongs the transient antifungal effect of dodecanol by downregulating genes of multidrug efflux pumps, mainly PDR5. However, the detailed mechanisms of dodecanol's antifungal action and the anethole-induced prolonged antifungal action of dodecanol are unknown. Screening of S. cerevisiae strains lacking genes related to Ca2+ homeostasis and signaling identified a pmr1Δ strain lacking Golgi Ca2+-ATPase as more sensitive to dodecanol than the parental strain. Dodecanol and the dodecanol + anethole combination significantly increased intracellular Ca2+ levels in both strains, but the mutant failed to clear intracellular Ca2+ accumulation. Further, dodecanol and the drug combination reduced PMR1 expression and did not lead to specific localization of Pmr1p in the parental strain after 4-h treatment. By contrast with the parental strain, dodecanol did not stimulate PDR5 expression in pmr1Δ. Based on these observations, we propose that the antifungal activity of dodecanol is related to intracellular Ca2+ accumulation, possibly dependent on PMR1 function, with anethole enabling Ca2+ accumulation by restricting dodecanol efflux.

  • A subcellular proteome atlas of the yeast Komagataella phaffii
    • Authors: Valli M; Grillitsch K, Grünwald-Gruber C, et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTThe compartmentalization of metabolic and regulatory pathways is a common pattern of living organisms. Eukaryotic cells are subdivided into several organelles enclosed by lipid membranes. Organelle proteomes define their functions. Yeasts, as simple eukaryotic single cell organisms, are valuable models for higher eukaryotes and frequently used for biotechnological applications. While the subcellular distribution of proteins is well studied in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, this is not the case for other yeasts like Komagataella phaffii (syn. Pichia pastoris). Different to most well-studied yeasts, K. phaffii can grow on methanol, which provides specific features for production of heterologous proteins and as a model for peroxisome biology. We isolated microsomes, very early Golgi, early Golgi, plasma membrane, vacuole, cytosol, peroxisomes and mitochondria of K. phaffii from glucose- and methanol-grown cultures, quantified their proteomes by liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry of either unlabeled or tandem mass tag-labeled samples. Classification of the proteins by their relative enrichment, allowed the separation of enriched proteins from potential contaminants in all cellular compartments except the peroxisomes. We discuss differences to S. cerevisiae, outline organelle specific findings and the major metabolic pathways and provide an interactive map of the subcellular localization of proteins in K. phaffii.

  • Investigating the role of ERAD on antibody processing in glycoengineered
           Saccharomyces cerevisiae
    • Authors: Piirainen M; Frey A.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTN-glycosylation plays an important role in the endoplasmic reticulum quality control (ERQC). N-glycan biosynthesis pathways have been engineered in yeasts and fungi to enable the production of therapeutic glycoproteins with human-compatible N-glycosylation, and some glycoengineering approaches alter the synthesis of the lipid-linked oligosaccharide (LLO). Because the effects of LLO engineering on ERQC are currently unknown, we characterized intracellular processing of IgG in glycoengineered Δalg3 Δalg11 Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain and analyzed how altered LLO structures affect endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD). Intracellular IgG light and heavy chain molecules expressed in Δalg3 Δalg11 strain are ERAD substrates and targeted to ERAD independently of Yos9p and Htm1p, whereas in the presence of ALG3 ERAD targeting is dependent on Yos9p but does not require Htm1p. Blocking of ERAD accumulated ER and post-Golgi forms of IgG and increased glycosylation of matα secretion signal but did not improve IgG secretion. Our results show ERAD targeting of a heterologous glycoprotein in yeast, and suggest that proteins in the ER can be targeted to ERAD via other mechanisms than the Htm1p-Yos9p-dependent route when the LLO biosynthesis is altered.

    • Authors: Oh E; Jin Y.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTConversion of lignocellulosic biomass to biofuels using microbial fermentation is an attractive option to substitute petroleum-based production economically and sustainably. The substantial efforts to design yeast strains for biomass hydrolysis have led to industrially applicable biological routes. Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a robust microbial platform widely used in biofuel production, based on its amenability to systems and synthetic biology tools. The critical challenges for the efficient microbial conversion of lignocellulosic biomass by engineered S. cerevisiae include heterologous expression of cellulolytic enzymes, co-fermentation of hexose and pentose sugars, and robustness against various stresses. Scientists developed many engineering strategies for cellulolytic S. cerevisiae strains, bringing the application of consolidated bioprocess at an industrial scale. Recent advances in the development and implementation of engineered yeast strains capable of assimilating lignocellulose will be reviewed.

  • Shot-gun proteomics: why thousands of unidentified signals matter
    • Authors: den Ridder M; Daran-Lapujade P, Pabst M.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTMass spectrometry-based proteomics has become a constitutional part of the multi-omics toolbox in yeast research, advancing fundamental knowledge of molecular processes and guiding decisions in strain and product developmental pipelines. Nevertheless, post-translational protein modifications (PTMs) continue to challenge the field of proteomics. PTMs are not directly encoded in the genome; therefore, they require a sensitive analysis of the proteome itself. In yeast, the relevance of post-translational regulators has already been established, such as for phosphorylation, which can directly affect the reaction rates of metabolic enzymes. Whereas, the selective analysis of single modifications has become a broadly employed technique, the sensitive analysis of a comprehensive set of modifications still remains a challenge. At the same time, a large number of fragmentation spectra in a typical shot-gun proteomics experiment remain unidentified. It has been estimated that a good proportion of those unidentified spectra originates from unexpected modifications or natural peptide variants. In this review, recent advancements in microbial proteomics for unrestricted protein modification discovery are reviewed, and recent research integrating this additional layer of information to elucidate protein interaction and regulation in yeast is briefly discussed.

  • Tasting the terroir of wine yeast innovation
    • Authors: Pretorius I.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTWine is an archetypal traditional fermented beverage with strong territorial and socio-cultural connotations. Its 7000 year history is patterned by a tradition of innovation. Every value-adding innovation − whether in the vineyard, winery, supply chain or marketplace − that led to the invention of a new tradition spurred progress and created a brighter future from past developments. In a way, wine traditions can be defined as remembered innovations from the distant past − inherited knowledge and wisdom that withstood the test of time. Therefore, it should not be assumed a priori that tradition and innovation are polar opposites. The relations between the forces driven by the anchors of tradition and the wings of innovation do not necessarily involve displacement, conflict or exclusiveness. Innovation can strengthen wine tradition, and the reinvention of a tradition-bound practice, approach or concept can foster innovation. In cases where a paradigm-shifting innovation disrupts a tradition, the process of such an innovation transitioning into a radically new tradition can become protracted while proponents of divergent opinions duke it out. Sometimes these conflicting opinions are based on fact, and sometimes not. The imperfections of such a debate between the ‘ancients’ and the ‘moderns’ can, from time to time, obscure the line between myth and reality. Therefore, finding the right balance between traditions worth keeping and innovations worth implementing can be complex. The intent here is to harness the creative tension between science fiction and science fact when innovation's first-principles challenge the status quo by re-examining the foundational principles about a core traditional concept, such as terroir. Poignant questions are raised about the importance of the terroir (biogeography) of yeasts and the value of the microbiome of grapes to wine quality. This article imagines a metaphorical terroir free from cognitive biases where diverse perspectives can converge to uncork the effervescent power of territorial yeast populations as well as ‘nomadic’ yeast starter cultures. At the same time, this paper also engages in mental time-travel. A future scenario is imagined, explored, tested and debated where terroir-less yeast avatars are equipped with designer genomes to safely and consistently produce, individually or in combination with region-specific wild yeasts and or other starter cultures, high-quality wine according to the preferences of consumers in a range of markets. The purpose of this review is to look beyond the horizon and to synthesize a link between what we know now and what could be. This article informs readers where to look without suggesting what they must see as a way forward. In the context of one of the world's oldest fermentation industries − steeped in a rich history of tradition and innovation − the mantra here is: respect the past, lead the present and secure the future of wine.

  • Engineering G protein-coupled receptor signalling in yeast for
           biotechnological and medical purposes
    • Authors: Lengger B; Jensen M.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTG protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) comprise the largest class of membrane proteins in the human genome, with a common denominator of seven-transmembrane domains largely conserved among eukaryotes. Yeast is naturally armoured with three different GPCRs for pheromone and sugar sensing, with the pheromone pathway being extensively hijacked for characterising heterologous GPCR signalling in a model eukaryote. This review focusses on functional GPCR studies performed in yeast and on the elucidated hotspots for engineering, and discusses both endogenous and heterologous GPCR signalling. Key emphasis will be devoted to studies describing important engineering parameters to consider for successful coupling of GPCRs to the yeast mating pathway. We also review the various means of applying yeast for studying GPCRs, including the use of yeast armed with heterologous GPCRs as a platform for (i) deorphanisation of orphan receptors, (ii) metabolic engineering of yeast for production of bioactive products and (iii) medical applications related to pathogen detection and drug discovery. Finally, this review summarises the current challenges related to expression of functional membrane-bound GPCRs in yeast and discusses the opportunities to continue capitalising on yeast as a model chassis for functional GPCR signalling studies.

  • Anaplerotic reactions active during growth of
           Saccharomyces cerevisiae on glycerol
    • Authors: Xiberras J; Klein M, Prosch C, et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTAnaplerotic reactions replenish TCA cycle intermediates during growth. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, pyruvate carboxylase and the glyoxylate cycle have been experimentally identified to be the main anaplerotic routes during growth on glucose (C6) and ethanol (C2), respectively. The current study investigates the importance of the two isoenzymes of pyruvate carboxylase (PYC1 and PYC2) and one of the key enzymes of the glyoxylate cycle (ICL1) for growth on glycerol (C3) as a sole carbon source. As the wild-type strains of the CEN.PK family are unable to grow in pure synthetic glycerol medium, a reverse engineered derivative showing a maximum specific growth rate of 0.14 h−1 was used as the reference strain. While the deletion of PYC1 reduced the maximum specific growth rate by about 38%, the deletion of PYC2 had no significant impact, neither in the reference strain nor in the pyc1Δ mutant. The deletion of ICL1 only marginally reduced growth of the reference strain but further decreased the growth rate of the pyc1 deletion strain by 20%. Interestingly, the triple deletion (pyc1Δ pyc2Δ icl1Δ) did not show any growth. Therefore, both the pyruvate carboxylase and the glyoxylate cycle are involved in anaplerosis during growth on glycerol.

  • Stress and ageing in yeast
    • Authors: Dawes I; Perrone G.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTThere has long been speculation about the role of various stresses in ageing. Some stresses have beneficial effects on ageing—dependent on duration and severity of the stress, others have negative effects and the question arises whether these negative effects are causative of ageing or the result of the ageing process. Cellular responses to many stresses are highly coordinated in a concerted way and hence there is a great deal of cross-talk between different stresses. Here the relevant aspects of the coordination of stress responses and the roles of different stresses on yeast cell ageing are discussed, together with the various functions that are involved. The cellular processes that are involved in alleviating the effects of stress on ageing are considered, together with the possible role of early stress events on subsequent ageing of cells.

  • Dear medical mycologists, it is time to look outside the box
    • Authors: Morio F.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTOpulente et al. (Opulente DA, Langdon QK, Buh KV et al. Pathogenic budding yeasts isolated outside of clinical settings. FEMS Yeast Res 2019;19:foz032) published early this year a study aiming to investigate the diversity of wild yeast species, by collecting 1000 environmental samples coming from different substrates across the United States of America. The main finding of this work is the recovery of 54 strains of budding yeasts of which several are having a pathogenic potential in the clinical setting, such as Candida albicans, C. parapsilosis, C. tropicalis, Nakaseomyces glabrata and Pichia kudriavzevii. These findings, discussed here in light of other recent studies highlighting the role of fungicides in the rise of antifungal resistance in the clinical setting or the emergence of Candida auris, demonstrate that our environment can represent an alternative niche for several opportunistic fungal pathogens that can be a concern for human health.
