Several derivatives of the native Srb10 proteins from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Kluyveromyces lactis, with removed selected motifs, have been constructed in order to test their role in Srb10p function. It has been demonstrated that the ATP binding site is necessary for repression of FLO11, CYC7 and SPI1. Yeast Srb10p specific motifs CM-I and CM-II,(More)
Acridine orange and adriamycin have a very low denaturing effect on DNA isolated from Chinese hamster cells but strongly increase heat-induced denaturation. When these intercalating agents are added to the growth media they modify the sensitivity to heat denaturation of DNA extracted from treated cultures when compared with untreated cultures. This effect(More)
Mitochondrial NADH dehydrogenase has been purified from rat liver mitochondria by protamine sulfate fractionation and DEAE-Sephadex chromatography. The enzyme is water-soluble and its molecular weight has been estimated at 400 +/- 50 kilodaltons. NADH-ferricyanide reductase and NADH cytochrome c reductase activities have been studied and the kinetic(More)
Ixr1 is a transcriptional factor involved in the response to hypoxia, which is also related to DNA repair. It binds to DNA through its two in-tandem high mobility group box (HMG-box) domains. Each function depends on recognition of different DNA structures, B-form DNA at specific consensus sequences for transcriptional regulation, or distorted DNA, like(More)
It has been previously reported that Gcr1 differentially controls growth and sugar utilization in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Kluyveromyces lactis, although the regulatory mechanisms causing activation of glycolytic genes are conserved (Neil et al., 2004). We have found that KlGCR1 deletion diminishes glucose consumption and ethanol production, but(More)
