Growth in YPD

YBR033W YPD.png

In a BY4735 background, knocking out YBR033W seems to have a moderate effect on growth rate in log-phase. In this assay, the BY4735 strain's doubling time was 414 minutes, while the YBR033W knock-out strain's doubling time was 532 minutes. (These doubling times are the means of three experiments.)

Caffeine and Yeast Cells


This graph shows the growth curve with and without caffeine. It has the knockout strain and wild type yeast cells. The caffeine enhanced the growth in both wild type and knockout strain. The average doubling time between the three experiments for the knockout strand was 708.67 minutes. The caffeine also had a positive effect on the growth curve for the wild type with the average doubling time being 1245.02 minutes. The results were concluded from the wild type and knockout strand was with this amount of caffeine it leads to an increase in growth.

This bar graph show that compared to a BY4735 background, Knocking out yBR033w make yeast less sensitive to UV light exposure
