Expression of a yeast metallothionein gene family is activated by a single metalloregulatory transcription factor.

Abstract

The opportunistic pathogenic yeast Candida glabrata elicits at least two major responses in the presence of high environmental metal levels: transcriptional induction of the metallothionein gene family by copper and the appearance of small (gamma-Glu-Cys)nGly peptides in the presence of cadmium. On the basis of a trans-activation selection scheme in the… (More)
