Histidine is a crucial amino acid for growth in S. cerevisiae and plays other important roles for survival in larger eukaryotes. Histidine auxotrophs, organisms that cannot synthesize histidine, often exhibit inhibited growth and development. Research of the model organism, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, illuminates eukaryotic uses of amino acids in other… CONTINUE READING
