A lot of studies have been carried out on Saccharomyces cerevisiae, an yeast with a predominant fermentative metabolism under aerobic conditions, which allows exploring the complex response induced by oxidative stress. S. cerevisiae is considered a eukaryote model for these studies. We propose Kluyveromyces lactis as a good alternative model to analyse(More)
Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Kluyveromyces lactis are considered to be the prototypes of two distinct metabolic models of facultatively-aerobic yeasts: Crabtree-positive/fermentative and Crabtree-negative/respiratory, respectively. Our group had previously proposed that one of the molecular keys supporting this difference lies in the mechanisms involved in(More)
Gene expression is potently regulated through the action of microRNAs (miRNAs). Here, we present evidence of a miRNA regulating Hakai protein. Hakai was discovered as an E3 ubiquitin-ligase that mediates the posttranslational downregulation of E-cadherin, a major component of adherens junctions in epithelial cells and a potent tumour suppressor.
