GDH3 encodes a glutamate dehydrogenase isozyme, a previously unrecognized route for glutamate biosynthesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
It has been considered that the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, like many other microorganisms, synthesizes glutamate through the action of NADP+-glutamate dehydrogenase (NADP+-GDH), encoded by GDH1,Expand

Saccharomyces cerevisiae has a single glutamate synthase gene coding for a plant-like high-molecular-weight polypeptide.
Purification of the glutamate synthase (GOGAT) enzyme from Saccharomyces cerevisiae showed that it is an oligomeric enzyme composed of three identical 199-kDa subunits. The GOGAT structural gene wasExpand

Dengue Virus Replicative Intermediate RNA Detection by Reverse Transcription-PCR
ABSTRACT Dengue virus replication involves synthesis of a replicative intermediate RNA (RI-RNA), whose presence reveals an actual infection. We report on a simple and rapid reverse transcription-PCRExpand

Regulation of the amino acid permeases in nitrogen‐limited continuous cultures of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, there is a general amino acid permease, regulated by nitrogen catabolite repression, and several specific permeases whose nitrogen regulation is not wellExpand
