Phosphoinositide phosphatases play an essential but as yet not well-understood role in lipid-based signal transduction. Members of a subfamily of these enzymes share a specific domain that was first identified in the yeast Sac1 protein [1]. Sac1 homology domains were shown to exhibit 3- and 4-phosphatase activity in vitro [2, 3] and were also found, in(More)
Analysis of microsomal ATP transport in yeast resulted in the identification of Sac1p as an important factor in efficient ATP uptake into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) lumen. Yet it remained unclear whether Sac1p is the authentic transporter in this reaction. Sac1p shows no homology to other known solute transporters but displays similarity to the(More)
Polarized deposition of chitin at the bud neck is essential for cell separation in yeast. Chitin septum biogenesis is catalyzed by two distinct chitin synthase activities encoded by the CHS2 and CHS3 genes. The phosphoinositide phosphatase Sac1p is required for proper trafficking of the Chs3p chitin synthase. sac1 mutants also display a severe synthetic(More)
An open comparison at a single center was performed in volunteers (n = 58) randomly allocated to two treatment groups, one receiving tablets containing 20 micrograms ethinylestradiol (EE) + 75 micrograms gestodene, and the other 30 micrograms EE + 75 micrograms gestodene. The study consisted of three treatment-free pre-cycles, followed by thirteen 28-day(More)
