SMVDU Researchers discover links between Autophagy and Flocculation using Yeast as a model organism

28032022 bairwaResearchers from Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University, Katra led by Dr. Narendra K Bairwa, Faculty, School of Biotechnology, SMVDU, recipient of the prestigious Ramalingaswami re-entry fellowship, discovered the link between Autophagy (self-eating process) and Flocculation (cell aggregation behavior) using Yeast as the model organism. The research findings are published in the Journal of Biochemical and Molecular Toxicology, April 2022 issue.

The authors of the published study titled “Deletion of autophagy-related, ATG1 and F-box motif encoding YDR131C, together, lead to synthetic growth defects and flocculation behavior in Saccharomyces cerevisiae”, Ms. Heena Shoket, Ms. Sadia Pervez, Ms. Meenu Sharma, Ms. Monika Pandita, Ms. Vishali Sharma and Mr. Prabhat Kumar are researchers who contributed to the work. The laboratory of Dr. Narendra Kumar Bairwa is supported by DBT, SERB-DST, & SMVDU, for work on gene-gene interactions, genome stability regulation, stress response, and screening of small molecules for drug discovery.
