In this work, we describe the hexokinase 2 (Hxk2) signalling pathway within the yeast cell. Hxk2 and Mig1 are the two major factors of glucose repression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The functions of both proteins have been extensively studied but there is no information about possible interactions among them in the repression pathway. Our results demonstrate that Hxk2 interacts directly with Mig1 in vivo and in vitro and that the ten amino acids motif between K6 and M15 is required for their… Expand
Functional domains of yeast hexokinase 2
TLDR
The present paper reports that the Hxk2wca mutant protein interacts with the Mig1 transcriptional repressor and the Snf1 protein kinase in the nucleus at the level of the SUC2–Mig1 repressor complex. Expand
Hxk2 Regulates the Phosphorylation State of Mig1 and Therefore Its Nucleocytoplasmic Distribution*
TLDR
It is found that phosphorylation of serine 311 of Mig1 by Snf1 kinase is essential for Mig1 protein nuclear export and derepression of the SUC2 gene in glucose-limited cells. Expand
Nuclear Export of the Yeast Hexokinase 2 Protein Requires the Xpo1 (Crm1)-dependent Pathway*
TLDR
This study uncovers a new cargo for the Xpo1 yeast exportin and identifies Hxk2 phosphorylation at serine 14 as a regulatory mechanism that controls its nuclear exit in function of the glucose levels. Expand
Sweet Sensor, Surprising Partners
TLDR
The identification of the HXK1 nuclear complex reveals an unexpected glucose-signaling mechanism and reinforces the notion that metabolic enzymes can play unique roles in signal transduction by directly controlling gene expression in the nucleus. Expand
Hexokinase 2 Is an Intracellular Glucose Sensor of Yeast Cells That Maintains the Structure and Activity of Mig1 Protein Repressor Complex*
TLDR
Using chromatin immunoprecipitation assays, it is discovered that the Hxk2 in its open configuration, at low glucose conditions, leaves the repressor complex that induces its dissociation and promotes SUC2 gene expression, suggesting that HxK2 is more intimately involved in gene regulation than previously thought. Expand
Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene YMR291W/TDA1 mediates the in vivo phosphorylation of hexokinase isoenzyme 2 at serine‐15
TLDR
To identify the responsible kinase, selected protein kinase single‐gene deletion mutants were screened by high resolution clear native PAGE and deletion of YMR291W/TDA1 resulted in the absence of the Hxk2 phosphomonomer, indicating an indispensable role of the corresponding protein in HxK2 phosphorylation. Expand
A systems biology approach to study glucose repression in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
The systems biology approach points to close interaction between the two pathways, and metabolism driven analysis of transcription data may find a wider application for analysis of cross‐talk between different pathways involved in regulation of metabolism. Expand
Regulatory Functions of Nuclear Hexokinase1 Complex in Glucose Signaling
TLDR
Genetic and chromatin immunoprecipitation analyses suggest that the nuclear HXK1 forms a glucose signaling complex core with VHA-B1 and RPT5B that directly modulates specific target gene transcription independent of glucose metabolism. Expand
Improving Xylose Fermentation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae by Expressing Nuclear-Localized Hexokinase 2
TLDR
The results show that the expression of HXK2S14A, which encodes a constitutively nucleus-localized Hxk2p, increased the xylose consumption rate, the ethanol production rate, and the ethanol yield of the engineered yeast strain by 23.5%, 78.6% and 42.6%, respectively. Expand
An ancient oxidoreductase making differential use of its cofactors
TLDR
ScGal80 from Saccharomyces cerevisiae is reported to bind NAD(P), and it is shown that the ability to bind these ligands is conserved in KlGal80, a Gal80 homolog from the distantly related yeast Kluyveromyces lactis, but the homologs apparently have diverged with respect to response to the dinucleotide.

The Glucose-regulated Nuclear Localization of Hexokinase 2 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae Is Mig1-dependent*
TLDR
It is reported that Hxk2 has a glucose-regulated nuclear localization and that Mig1, a transcriptional repressor responsible for glucose repression of many genes, is required to sequester HxK2 into the nucleus of S. cerevisiae during growth in glucose medium. Expand
The hexokinase 2-dependent glucose signal transduction pathway of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
The elucidation of the mechanism of transport of Hxk2 to and from the nucleus, the influence of the oligomeric state of the protein on the nuclear transport and the fine mechanism of regulation of transcription of HXK2 are among the important unanswered questions in relation with the regulatory role of H xk2.

Hexokinase PII: structural analysis and glucose signalling in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
Two mutants of Hxk2 are found that, having low catalytic activity, were still fully functional in glucose signalling, which may indicate that other factors and not just the catalyticActivity of the enzyme may be important for the functionality of the protein in sugars signalling. Expand
The hexokinase 2 protein participates in regulatory DNA‐protein complexes necessary for glucose repression of the SUC2 gene in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
Examination of invertase activity in wild‐type and mutant cells expressing a truncated version of the HXk2 protein unable to enter the nucleus shows that a nuclear localisation of Hxk2 is necessary for glucose repression signalling of the SUC2 gene. Expand
Regulated nuclear translocation of the Mig1 glucose repressor.
TLDR
The results suggest that a glucose-regulated nuclear import and/or export mechanism controls the activity of Mig1, a Cys2-His2 zinc finger protein that mediates glucose repression of several genes in bakers yeast. Expand
Novel sensing mechanisms and targets for the cAMP–protein kinase A pathway in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
A major issue that remains to be resolved is the precise connection between the cAMP–PKA pathway and other nutrient‐regulated components involved in the control of growth and of phenotypic characteristics correlated with growth, such as the Sch9 and Yak1 protein kinases. Expand
Function and Regulation of Yeast Hexose Transporters
TLDR
These two regulatory pathways collaborate with other, less well-understood, pathways to ensure that yeast cells express the glucose transporters best suited for the amount of glucose available. Expand
Snf1 Protein Kinase Regulates Phosphorylation of the Mig1 Repressor in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
It is shown that Snf1 and Mig1 interact in the two-hybrid system and also coimmunoprecipitate from cell extracts, indicating that the two proteins interact in vivo. Expand
Rgt1p of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a key regulator of glucose-induced genes, is both an activator and a repressor of transcription
TLDR
The isolation of RGT1 is reported and it is demonstrated that it encodes a bifunctional transcription factor, which is required for inactivation of Rgt1p repressor function by low levels of glucose and for conversion of R Sgt1p into an activator at high Levels of glucose. Expand
Identification of cis-acting elements in the SUC2 promoter of Saccharomyces cerevisiae required for activation of transcription.
TLDR
Mutation of the two GC boxes revealed that these elements play two distinct roles: they are, as expected, required for Mig1-mediated repression but they are also necessary for activation of the SUC2 promoter in response to glucose limitation. Expand
