The yeast cell wall is a crucial extracellular organelle that protects the cell from lysis during environmental stress and morphogenesis. Here, we demonstrate that the yapsin family of five glycosylphosphatidylinositol-linked aspartyl proteases is required for cell wall integrity in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Yapsin null mutants show hypersensitivity to cell(More)
A considerable amount of evidence suggests that temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain associated with temporomandibular disorder results, at least in part, from an inflammatory episode. Although histamine can cause pain, it is not clear whether this mediator induces nociception in the TMJ. In this study, we investigated the contribution of endogenous histamine(More)
