Expression of the HXT genes encoding glucose transporters in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is regulated by two interconnected glucose-signaling pathways: the Snf3/Rgt2-Rgt1 glucose induction pathway and the Snf1-Mig1 glucose repression pathway. The Snf3 and Rgt2 glucose sensors in the membrane generate a signal in the presence of glucose that(More)
Major histocompatibility complex class II molecules are synthesized as a nonameric complex consisting of three alpha beta dimers associated with a trimer of invariant (Ii) chains. After exiting the TGN, a targeting signal in the Ii chain cytoplasmic domain directs the complex to endosomes where Ii chain is proteolytically processed and removed, allowing(More)
In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, choline enters the cell via a single high-affinity transporter, Hnm1p. hnm1Δ cells lacking HNM1 gene are viable. However, they are unable to transport choline suggesting that no additional active choline transporters are present in this organism. A complementation study of a choline auxotrophic mutant, ctr1-ise (hnm1-ise), using(More)
Band T-cell receptors, as well as most Fc receptors (FcR), are part of a large family of membrane proteins named immunoreceptors and are expressed on all cells of the immune system. Immunoreceptors’ biological functions rely on two of their fundamental attributes: signal transduction and internalization. The signals required for these two functions are(More)
