Phospholipid synthesis and lipid composition of subcellular membranes in the unicellular eukaryote Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Subcellular membranes of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, including mitochondria, microsomes, plasma membranes, secretory vesicles, vacuoles, nuclear membranes, peroxisomes, and lipid particles, wereExpand

Electrospray Ionization Tandem Mass Spectrometry (Esi-Ms/Ms) Analysis of the Lipid Molecular Species Composition of Yeast Subcellular Membranes Reveals Acyl Chain-Based Sorting/Remodeling of Distinct
Nano-electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (nano-ESI-MS/MS) was employed to determine qualitative differences in the lipid molecular species composition of a comprehensive set ofExpand

Sterol composition of yeast organelle membranes and subcellular distribution of enzymes involved in sterol metabolism.
Organelles of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae were isolated and analyzed for sterol composition and the activity of three enzymes involved in sterol metabolism. The plasma membrane and secretoryExpand

Characterization of lipid particles of the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Lipid particles of the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, were isolated to high purity and their components were analysed. The hydrophobic core of this organelle consists of triacylglycerols and sterylExpand

8 Regulation and Compartmentalization of Lipid Synthesis in Yeast
I. INTRODUCTION The membrane lipids of Saccharomyces cerevisiae are similar to those of other eukaryotic organisms. Yeast synthesizes sterols, and its membranes contain a typically eukaryotic mixtureExpand

Characterization of a microsomal subfraction associated with mitochondria of the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Involvement in synthesis and import of phospholipids into mitochondria.
In the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, similar to higher eukaryotes most phospholipids are synthesized in microsomes. Mitochondria contribute to the cellular biosynthesis of phospholipids insofar asExpand

Mas37p, a novel receptor subunit for protein import into mitochondria
By screening a collection of Saccharomyces cerevisiae mutants temperature sensitive for growth on a nonfermentable carbon source, we have isolated a gene (termed MAS37) which encodes a novel receptorExpand

The Saccharomyces cerevisiae PLB1 gene encodes a protein required for lysophospholipase and phospholipase B activity.
Several enzymes with lysophospholipase/phospholipase B activity have been described from the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In vitro, these enzymes are capable of hydrolyzing allExpand

Acetyl-CoA carboxylase from yeast is an essential enzyme and is regulated by factors that control phospholipid metabolism.
We have isolated a 1.2-kilobase pair cDNA fragment in a screening for yeast genes regulated at the level of transcription by soluble lipid precursors, inositol and choline. Sequence analysis andExpand
