General description

Yeast Nitrogen Base is a highly-referenced growth medium used for the cultivation of yeast. This nutrient-rich microbial broth contains nitrogen, vitamins, trace elements and salts.
Yeast Nitrogen Base is considered ideal for culturing wild type yeast. The presence of amino acid is known to prevent selectable marker utilization. Hence, this media is formulated without amino acids and is useful for cloning and manipulation of yeast artificial chromosome.

Application

Suitable for use in classifying yeasts based on amino acid and carbon requirements. Addition of amino acids and carbon source (usually glucose) may be required.
Yeast Nitrogen Base Without Amino Acids has been used:
  • in synthetic complete supplement mixture (SC)-Leu media used for Y. lipolytica culturing and characterization
  • as a component of selective liquid media for uracil auxothrophic growth in yeast
  • to evaluate the transformation efficiencies of S. cerevisiae strains, under different nutrient conditions

Whole transcriptome amplification (WTA) is a method often used to amplify small quantities of reverse transcribed RNA, or degraded RNA for direct use in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) workflows. Discover our SeqPlex™-I WTA library preparation kit for producing libraries that are ready for direct input onto Illumina® NGS flow cells.

Traditional methods are based morphology, staining methods, enzyme reactions (metabolism) and diverse media.

Protocols

Yeast Drop Out Bulletin. The selection of plasmids in yeast is based on the use of auxotrophic mutant strains, which cannot grow without a specific medium component (an amino acid, purine or pyrimidine). Transformation with a plasmid containing the mutated gene enables the transformant to grow on a medium lacking the required component. Although yeast can grow on a synthetic medium without any amino acids, better yield and growth rate can be achieved on richer media.

Yeasts are considered model systems for eukaryotic studies as they exhibit fast growth and have dispersed cells. Yeast cultures can be grown, maintained, and stored in liquid media or on agar plates using techniques similar to those for bacterial cultures.
