Growth in YPD

YKR005C YPD.png

In a BY4735 background, knocking out YKR005C seems to have a little to no effect on growth rate in log-phase. In this assay, the BY4735 strain's doubling time was 414 minutes, while the YKR005C knock-out strain's doubling time was 427 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 736.38 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.

Prednisone Effects on Yeast Growth

This bar graph shows that compared to a BY4735 background, Knocking out yKR005c makes yeast a little more sensitive to UV light.

Ethanol Tolerance in YKR005C

This graph shows the growth between YKR005C treated and untreated with ethanol. The rate of growth of the yeast treated with ethanol is (answer). The rate of growth of the yeast not treated with ethanol is (answer). This shows that the strands of YKR005C treated with ethanol had an increased growth rate compared to those that weren't.
