The purine-cytosine permease from Saccharomyces cerevisiae mediates the active transport through the plasma membrane of adenine, hypoxanthine, guanine and cytosine using the proton electrochemical potential difference as an energy source. Analysis of the activity of strains mutated in a hydrophilic segment (371-377) of the polypeptidic chain has shown the(More)
The purine-cytosine permease (PCP), a carrier located in the plasma membrane of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, mediates the active transport of purine (adenine, guanine and hypoxanthine) and cytosine into the cell. Previous studies [Ferreira, T, Brèthes, D., Pinson, B., Napias, C. & Chevallier, J. et al. (1997) J. Biol. Chem. 272, 9697-9702] suggest that the(More)
The purine-cytosine permease (PCP) is an active transporter located in the plasma membrane of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This protein mediates purine (adenine, guanine, and hypoxanthine) and cytosine accumulation in the cell by using an electrochemical potential difference in proton as the energy source. Various mutant strains, with altered Kt(app)(More)
Disrupted morphogenesis and growth of the embryonic maxillary jaw lead to oral facial clefting in humans (OFC) and result in an incompletely formed secondary mouth and face. A requirement for Wnt signaling and Wnt9b in particular are postulated in the etiology of OFC from association studies in humans and from animal models. Loss of murine Wnt9b leads to(More)
