The yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the model eukaryote, has provided many insights into molecular and cellular biology, as well as insights into many human diseases. In this paper we present some insights on how yeast studies are contributing to knowledge about the role of oxidative damage to cell health, and how one of the key players [...]
