Trehalases are important highly conserved enzymes found in a wide variety of organisms and are responsible for the hydrolysis of trehalose that serves as a carbon and energy source as well as a universal stress protectant. Emerging evidence indicates that the enzymatic activity of the neutral trehalase Nth1 in yeast is enhanced by 14-3-3 protein binding in(More)
BACKGROUND Trehalases are highly conserved enzymes catalyzing the hydrolysis of trehalose in a wide range of organisms. The activity of yeast neutral trehalase Nth1 is regulated in a 14-3-3- and a calcium-dependent manner. The Bmh proteins (the yeast 14-3-3 isoforms) recognize phosphorylated Nth1 and enhance its enzymatic activity through an unknown(More)
