Growth Curve

YBR138C YPD.png

In a BY4735 background, knocking out YBR138C seems to have no effect on growth rate in log-phase. In this assay, the BY4735 strain's doubling time was 414 minutes, while the YBR138C knock-out strain's doubling time was 432minutes. (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 689.46 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 shows that compared to a BY4735 background, yBR138c makes yeast less sensitive to UV light exposure.

UV Light Exposure

Cycloheximide effecting YBR138C

In this image we see that tests 2&3 are surviving and tests 1&4 are not doing as well under this stress. 1 is very low compared to 3 and this is kind of weird. The three Growth models are YBR138C not be stressed.

Effect of 3% DMSO on YBR138C

Effect of 3% DMSO on YBR138C.png

The graph above shows the effect of 3% DMSO on YBR138C. From the data represented the average doubling rate for the YBR138C knockout strain without DMSO was 570 minutes. When DMSO is added the average doubling time increased to 835 minutes. This shows that 3% DMSO did add stress to this knockout strain. The average doubling time of WT:BY4735 without DMSO was 514 minutes. The average doubling rate for WT:BY4735 with DMSO was 1529 minutes. If we compare the average doubling rate of WT:BY4735 with DMSO to YBR138C with DMSO we can see that without the YBR138C gene the yeast was able to grow more quickly under DMSO induced stress, so much so that it almost halves the doubling time. Given both controls it also appears that the YBR138C gene has very little effect on the growth of the yeast in optimal conditions.

Ethanol Tolerance in YBR138C

YBR138C ethonal.png

This graph shows the growth between YBR138C treated and untreated with ethanol. The rate of growth of the treated yeast is 1324.94 minutes. The rate of growth of the untreated yeast is 166.2485 minutes. This shows that the strands of YBR138C treated with ethanol had a decrease rate of growth compared to the strands that weren't.

Prednisone Effects on YBR138C


The graph above shows how dilutions P2 (30 µg/ml) and E2 (10% ethanol solution) impacted the growth rate of the knockout yeast strain YBR138C over 24 hours. The concentration did not double for test 3 of P2 for this experiment, so by taking only the first two test results, the doubling rate averages to around 962.5 minutes for only ethanol. As for the Prednisone with ethanol, the doubling rate averages to around 880 minutes. Overall, the Prednisone increased the rate of growth by about 82.5 minutes. The ethanol typically inhibits the growth of YBR138C more than the Prednisone with ethanol. These results conclude that Prednisone promotes the growth of yeast cells without the gene YBR138C.

1% Formamide Yeast Torture[[1]]

image 5.png

This graph shows the growth curve of the knockout yeast strain YBR138C and wild type BY4735 in 1% formamide in 3 trials. The average calculated doubling time for YBR138C with 1% formamide was 2710.55 minutes, while the unstressed strain was 3131.33 minutes. This concluded that the unstressed strain is slightly sensitive to 1% formamide, and grows at a slower pace in this environment. Our stressed wild types doubling time was 3459.91 minutes, and the unstressed was 2468.04 minutes. This shows that the addition of 1% formamide constrains growth for the stressed wild type.
