OIST and Toshiba Sign Memorandum of Understanding on Promoting Collaborative Research
G0 Cell Unit work on fission yeast cells in low-glucose may lead to new research into metabolic diseases
Researchers at the OIST G0 Cell Unit have found that the actual glucose requirements of fission yeast cells and human cells are surprisingly similar and that the life span of fission yeast could be prolonged by glucose starvation, an effect that had been observed in higher organisms like human beings.
