Aconitase Couples Metabolic Regulation to Mitochondrial DNA Maintenance
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is essential for cells to maintain respiratory competency and is inherited as a protein-DNA complex called the nucleoid. We have identified 22 mtDNA-associated proteins inExpand

The hexokinase gene is required for transcriptional regulation of the glucose transporter gene RAG1 in Kluyveromyces lactis.
The RAG1 gene of Kluyveromyces lactis encodes a low-affinity glucose/fructose transporter. Its transcription is induced by glucose, fructose, and several other sugars. The RAG4, RAG5, and RAG8 genesExpand

A Cytosolic Network Suppressing Mitochondria-Mediated Proteostatic Stress and Cell Death
Mitochondria are multifunctional organelles whose dysfunction leads to neuromuscular degeneration and ageing. The multi-functionality poses a great challenge for understanding the mechanisms by whichExpand

The petite mutation in yeasts: 50 years on.
Fifty years ago it was reported that baker's yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, can form "petite colonie" mutants when treated with the DNA-targeting drug acriflavin. To mark the jubilee of studies onExpand

Array-based comparative genomic hybridization reveals recurrent chromosomal aberrations and Jab1 as a potential target for 8q gain in hepatocellular carcinoma.
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the major malignancies worldwide. We have previously characterized global gene expression patterns in HCC using microarrays. Here, we report the analysis ofExpand

Low- and high-copy-number shuttle vectors for replication in the budding yeast Kluyveromyces lactis.
Four sets of plasmid vectors for the budding yeast Kluyveromyces lactis (Kl) have been constructed. All plasmids are pUC19-based shuttle vectors having multiple unique sites in their multiple cloningExpand
