Carbohydrate Accumulation During the Sporulation of Yeast


The sporulation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is characterized by an increase in dry weight without cell division.

The insoluble carbohydrates accumulate only during the period preceding the actual formation of visible ascospores. The trehalose accumulates throughout the sporulation cycle and is specifically localized in the ascospore.
