Saccharomyces cerevisiae HTR1 mutants are severely impaired in the uptake of glucose. We have cloned dominant HTR1 mutant alleles and show that they encode mutant forms of the Mth1 protein. Mth1 is shown to be involved in carbon source-dependent regulation of its own, invertase and hexose transporter gene expression. The mutant forms block the transduction(More)
We have characterized the gene YOR347c of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and shown that it encodes a second functional pyruvate kinase isoenzyme, Pyk2p. Overexpression of the YOR347c/PYK2 gene on a multicopy vector restored growth on glucose of a yeast pyruvate kinase 1 (pyk1) mutant strain and could completely substitute for the PYK1-encoded enzymatic activity.(More)
Glucose repression in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae designates a global regulatory system controlling the expression of various sets of genes required for the utilization of alternate carbon sources. In a screen, designed for the selection of mutants with reduced glycolytic flux we obtained isolates which were shown by complementation of the cloned(More)
