The Book in Springer: Organismal Agency Biological Concepts and Their Philosophical Foundations

This book explores the notion of organismal agency from the perspective of both philosophy and biology. The two sections of the book delve into parallel themes, including distinctions between organic and inorganic nature, self-organization, autonomy, self-presentation, memory, umwelt, and environmental influence. The book was edited by Jana Švorcová from Department of Philosophy and History of Science.

New insights into the regulation of the activity of the transcription factor Gcn4 in spatially structured yeast populations

Facebook Twitter The rapid response of both yeast and mammalian cells to a changing environment is an important prerequisite for their survival. The transcription factor Gcn4p helps yeast cells to react quickly to the availability of amino acids in the environment and to adapt their metabolism accordingly. The activity of this factor can be regulated at the level of its translation and stability. In the work published in the journal mBio, scientific teams of Zdena Palková (Faculty of Science, Charles University/BIOCEV) and Libuše Váchová (Institute of Microbiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences/BIOCEV) have uncovered a mechanism for regulating the activity of Gcn4p, which is important for the coordinated interaction of cells and their differentiation and is unique for spatially structured yeast populations, i.e. for the predominant form of yeast existence under natural conditions.
