Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase is required for cell wall structure and for tolerance to cell wall-perturbing agents in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Abstract

Here we report that deletion of SOD1, the Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is sensitive to cell wall-perturbing agents, such as Calcofluor white and Congo red. The sensitivity was restored by retransformation with wild type SOD1 or the addition of N-acetylcysteine or reduced glutathione to the medium. Additionally, the accumulation of… (More)
