Learmonth, Robert P. (2012) Membrane fluidity in yeast adaptation: insights from fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy. In: Reviews in Fluorescence 2010. Reviews in Fluorescence (7). Springer New York LLC, New York, NY. United States, pp. 67-93. ISBN 978-1-4419-9827-9
This review summarises work determining relationships among yeast membrane fluidity, cell physiology and environmental changes, utilising fluorescence spectroscopy and multi-photon microscopy. It outlines studies of how membrane fluidity relates to growth phase, cellular physiology and nutrition (particularly, glucose and zinc status) and membrane lipid composition. It also outlines how determination of membrane fluidity by fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy has provided insights into yeast responses to heat shock and heat and ethanol stress, the impact on membranes of the stress-protectant trehalose and roles of membrane-associated protein functions.
