Enhancement of superficial pseudohyphal growth by overexpression of the SFG1 gene in yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

In response to nitrogen limitation, diploid yeast strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae undergo a dimorphic transition to a filamentous growth form known as pseudohyphal growth. This developmental change can be classified into two distinct growing forms: invasive pseudohyphal growth and superficial pseudohyphal growth. We identified a yeast gene, SFG1, whose… CONTINUE READING
