The PHO84 gene specifies Pi-transport in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. A DNA fragment bearing the PHO84 gene was cloned by its ability to complement constitutive synthesis of repressible acid phosphatase of pho84 mutant cells. Its nucleotide sequence predicted a protein of 596 amino acids with a sequence homologous to that of a superfamily of sugar(More)
We have found an open reading frame which is 1.1 kb upstream of PHO84 (which encodes a Pi transporter) and is transcribed from the opposite strand. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, this gene is distal to the TUB3 locus on the left arm of chromosome XIII and is named GTR1. GTR1 encodes a protein consisting of 310 amino acid residues containing, in its N-terminal(More)
ThePHO84 gene inSaccharomyces cerevisiae encodes a Pi transporter, mutation of which confers constitutive synthesis of repressible acid phosphatase (rAPase), in medium containing repressible amounts of Pi, and an arsenate-resistant phenotype. We selected an arsenate-resistant mutant showing the constitutive synthesis of rAPase on nutrient plates containing(More)
During fermentation, yeast cells are exposed to a number of stresses — such as high alcohol concentration, high osmotic pressure, and temperature fluctuation — so some overlap of mechanisms involved in the response to these stresses has been suggested. To identify the genes required for tolerance to alcohol (ethanol, methanol, and 1-propanol), heat, osmotic(More)
PCR was used to isolate an invertase homolog gene from the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. The cloned inv1(+) gene encodes a protein of 581 amino acids with 16 potential asparagine-linked glycosylation sites, and has 39% and 38% identity to the Schwanniomyces occidentalis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae SUC2 invertases. When the inv1(+) gene was(More)
The PHO84 gene in Saccharomyces cerevisiae encodes the P(i) transporter Pho84p. The other three genes, GTR1, PHO86 and PHO87, are also suggested to be involved in the P(i) uptake system. We cloned and sequenced PHO86 and found that it encodes a 34-kDa protein consisting of 311 amino acid residues with two strongly hydrophobic segments in its N-terminal(More)
Two single (bel2 and bel4) and two double (bel3 bel7 and bel5 bel6) mutations causing enhanced transcription of a gene fusion, consisting of the open reading frame of PHO5 connected to the HIS5 promoter (HIS5p) integrated at the ura3 or leu2 locus, were isolated from a gcn4-disrupted mutant of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The PHO5 gene, encoding repressible(More)
The Ssn6p-Tup1p corepressor complex is important to the regulation of several diverse genes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and serves as a model for corepressor functions. To investigate the evolutionary conservation of these functions, sequences homologous to the S. cerevisiae TUP1 gene were cloned from Kluyveromyces lactis (TUP1) and Schizosaccharomyces(More)
The term ‘sake yeast’ is generally used to indicate the Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains that possess characteristics distinct from others including the laboratory strain S288C and are well suited for sake brewery. Here, we report the draft whole-genome shotgun sequence of a commonly used diploid sake yeast strain, Kyokai no. 7 (K7). The assembled sequence(More)
Various low-temperature-inducible genes such as fatty acid desaturase genes are essential for all living organisms to acclimate to low temperature. However, a low-temperature signal transduction pathway has not been identified in eukaryotes. In yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the Delta9 fatty acid desaturase gene OLE1 is activated by(More)
