Growth in YPD

YJR061W YPD.png

In a BY4735 background, knocking out YJR061W seems to have little to no effect on growth rate in log-phase. In this assay, the BY4735 strain's doubling time was 414 minutes, while the YJR061W knock-out strain's doubling time was 436 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 824.60 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.

  • Note: The graph should be labeled YJK061W

This bar graph showsthat compared to a BY4735 background, Knocking out yJR061w makes yeast a little bit more sensitive to UV light.

Ethanol Tolerance in YJR061W

This graph shows the growth between YJR061W treated and untreated with ethanol. The yeast treated with ethanol had a growth rate of (answer). The yeast not treated with ethanol had a growth rate of (answer). This shows that the strands of YJR061W treated with ethanol had an increased growth rate compared to those who weren't.
