A molecular switch on an arrestin-like protein relays glucose signaling to transporter endocytosis
Glucose remodels the post-translational modifications of the yeast arrestin-like protein Rod1 to promote glucose-induced transporter endocytosis.
Survey of molecular methods for the typing of wine yeast strains.
A survey of the genetic polymorphisms produced by distinct methods was performed in 23 commercial winery yeast strains, finding that any of the methods can be applied at the industrial scale. Expand
The Lactate-Proton Symport of Saccharomyces cerevisiae Is Encoded by JEN1
The results indicate that, under the experimental conditions tested, no other monocarboxylate permease is able to efficiently transport lactate in S. cerevisiae. Expand
Biodiversity of Saccharomyces yeast strains from grape berries of wine-producing areas using starter commercial yeasts.
There were differences in biodiversity according to the vineyard and year, showing that the biodiversity of Saccharomyces strains is influenced by climatic conditions and specific factors associated with the vineyards, such as age and size. Expand
Ecological survey of Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains from vineyards in the Vinho Verde Region of Portugal.
The present work reports the presence of commercial yeast strains used by the wineries and aims at the development of strategies for the preservation of biodiversity and genetic resources as a basis for further strain development. Expand
Role of monocarboxylate transporters in human cancers: state of the art
The literature on the role of MCTs in solid tumors in different locations is reviewed, with many conflicting results and in most cases there are no functional studies showing the dependence of the tumors on MCT expression and activity. Expand
SATP (YaaH), a succinate-acetate transporter protein in Escherichia coli.
The critical role of YaaH amino acid residues Leu¹³¹ and Ala¹⁶⁴ on the enhanced ability to transport lactate is demonstrated and its assignment as SatP: the Succinate-Acetate Transporter Protein is proposed. Expand
Mechanisms regulating the transport of acetic acid in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Cells of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae IGC 4072 grown in medium with acetic acid produced a mediated transport system that behaved as an electroneutral proton symport for the anionic form of the acid, subject to repression by glucose, fructose, sucrose, maltose or galactose. Expand
Dissemination and survival of commercial wine yeast in the vineyard: a large-scale, three-years study.
Analysis of population variations from year to year indicated that permanent implantation of commercial strains in the vineyard did not occur, but instead that these strains were subject to natural fluctuations of periodical appearance/disappearance like autochthonous strains. Expand
Transport of carboxylic acids in yeasts.
The current knowledge on yeast carboxylate transporters is reviewed, at the biochemical and molecular level, focusing also on recent biotechnological developments. Expand
