A Novel Family of Transporters Mediating the Transport of Glutathione Derivatives in Plants1
Uptake and compartmentation of reduced glutathione (GSH), oxidized glutathione (GSSG), and glutathione conjugates are important for many functions including sulfur transport, resistance againstExpand

Glutathione transporters.
BACKGROUND Glutathione (GSH) is synthesized in the cytoplasm but there is a requirement for glutathione not only in the cytoplasm, but in the other organelles and the extracellular milieu. GSH isExpand

CLOURE: Clustal Output Reformatter, a program for reformatting ClustalX/ClustalW outputs for SNP analysis and molecular systematics
We describe a program (and a website) to reformat the ClustalX/ClustalW outputs to a format that is widely used in the presentation of sequence alignment data in SNP analysis and molecular systematic studies. Expand

The glutathione-mediated detoxification pathway in yeast: an analysis using the red pigment that accumulates in certain adenine biosynthetic mutants of yeasts reveals the involvement of novel genes
The glutathione-mediated pathway for the detoxification of endogenously and exogenously derived toxic compounds was investigated using a pigment that accumulates in certain adenine biosyntheticExpand

apd1+, a gene required for red pigment formation in ade6 mutants of Schizosaccharomyces pombe, encodes an enzyme required for glutathione biosynthesis: a role for glutathione and a
Mutants in the adenine biosynthetic pathway of yeasts (ade1 and ade2 of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, ade6 and ade7 of Schizosaccharomyces pombe) accumulate an intense red pigment in their vacuoles whenExpand

The yeast homolog of H < beta > 58, a mouse gene essential for embryogenesis, performs a role in the delivery of proteins to the vacuole.
The highly conserved and ubiquitously expressed mouse gene H < beta > 58, identified through insertional mutagenesis, has been shown to be essential for early postimplantation development in mouse,Expand

The VPH2 gene encodes a 25 kDa protein required for activity of the yeast vacuolar H+‐ATPase
Strains bearing the vph2 mutation are defective in vacuolar acidification. The VPH2 gene was isolated from a genomic DNA library by complementation of the zinc‐sensitive phenotype of the mutant.Expand

The yeast multidrug resistance pump, Pdr5p, confers reduced drug resistance in erg mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae bearing lesions in the ergosterol biosynthetic pathway exhibit a pleiotropic drug-sensitive phenotype. This has been reported to result from an increasedExpand

Localization, Regulation, and Substrate Transport Properties of Bpt1p, a Saccharomyces cerevisiae MRP-Type ABC Transporter
ABSTRACT Saccharomyces cerevisiae Bpt1p is an ATP-binding cassette (ABC) protein that belongs to the MRP subfamily and is a close homologue of the glutathione conjugate (GS conjugate) transporterExpand

Glutathione biosynthesis in the yeast pathogens Candida glabrata and Candida albicans: essential in C. glabrata, and essential for virulence in C. albicans.
Redox pathways play a key role in pathogenesis. Glutathione, a central molecule in redox homeostasis in yeasts, is an essential metabolite, but its requirements can be met either from endogenousExpand
