Dimethylallyl diphosphate, an isomer of isopentenyl diphosphate, is a common substrate of Mod5p, a tRNA modifying enzyme, and the farnesyl diphosphate synthase Erg20p, the key enzyme of the isoprenoid pathway. rsp5 mutants, defective in the Rsp5 ubiquitin-protein ligase, were isolated and characterized as altering the mitochondrial/cytosolic distribution of(More)
Due to its natural properties, Trichoderma reesei is commonly used in industry-scale production of secretory proteins. Since almost all secreted proteins are O-glycosylated, modulation of the activity of enzymes of the O-glycosylation pathway are likely to affect protein production and secretion or change the glycosylation pattern of the secreted proteins,(More)
In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae the RER2 and SRT1 genes encode Rer2 and Srt1 proteins with cis-prenyltransferase (cis-PT-ase) activity. Both cis-PT-ases utilize farnesyl diphosphate (FPP) as a starter for polyprenyl diphosphate (dolichol backbone) formation. The products of the Rer2 and Srt1 proteins consist of 14-17 and 18-23 isoprene units,(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of acetaminophen (APAP) and/or trichloroethylene (TRI) on the liver cytochrome P450-dependent monooxygenase system, CYP2E1 and CYP1A2 (two important P450 isoforms), and liver glutathione (GSH) content in rats. Rats were given three different doses of APAP (250, 500 and 1000 mg/kg b...) and then the(More)
