Quantitatively deciphering a novel metabolic pathway triggered by sulfide gas

Project description

Sulfur metabolism in yeast

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a gaseous molecule that serves as a signaling mediator in the maintenance of cellular homeostasis, limiting damage to tissues. Despite evidence suggesting its beneficial impact on the mammalian gut microbiome, little is known about the role of H2S in microbiology. The EU funded Yeast H2S Signalling project will investigate the sulfur metabolism pathway in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and delineate how yeast responds to H2S. The work will uncover how this metabolic pathway influences cell-cell interactions and fitness and generate quantitative tools for quantifying volatiles and their impact on microbial interactions.
