Isolation of quiescent and nonquiescent cells from yeast stationary-phase cultures
Quiescence is the most common and, arguably, most poorly understood cell cycle state. This is in part because pure populations of quiescent cells are typically difficult to isolate. We report theExpand

Mutants Affecting the Structure of the Cortical Endoplasmic Reticulum in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
We find that the peripheral ER in Saccharomyces cerevisiae forms a dynamic network of interconnecting membrane tubules throughout the cell cycle, similar to the ER in higher eukaryotes. MaintenanceExpand

PAS7 encodes a novel yeast member of the WD‐40 protein family essential for import of 3‐oxoacyl‐CoA thiolase, a PTS2‐containing protein, into peroxisomes.
To identify components of the peroxisomal import pathway in yeast, we have isolated pas mutants affected in peroxisome biogenesis. Two mutants assigned to complementation group 7 define a new gene,Expand

Dual role of mitofilin in mitochondrial membrane organization and protein biogenesis.
The mitochondrial inner membrane consists of two domains, inner boundary membrane and cristae membrane that are connected by crista junctions. Mitofilin/Fcj1 was reported to be involved in formationExpand

Genome sequencing and analysis of the filamentous fungus Penicillium chrysogenum
Industrial penicillin production with the filamentous fungus Penicillium chrysogenum is based on an unprecedented effort in microbial strain improvement. To gain more insight into penicillinExpand

PEX Genes in Fungal Genomes: Common, Rare or Redundant
PEX genes encode proteins, termed peroxins, that are required for the biogenesis and proliferation of microbodies (peroxisomes). We have screened the available protein and DNA databases to identifyExpand

Pmp27 promotes peroxisomal proliferation
Peroxisomes perform many essential functions in eukaryotic cells. The weight of evidence indicates that these organelles divide by budding from preexisting peroxisomes. This process is not understoodExpand

Pex14p, a Peroxisomal Membrane Protein Binding Both Receptors of the Two PTS-Dependent Import Pathways
Pex14p, an S. cerevisiae peroxin, is attached to the outer face of the peroxisomal membrane and is a component of the protein import machinery. Pex14p interacts with both the PTS1 and PTS2 receptors.Expand
