Previous studies evidenced in Saccharomyces cerevisiae the activity of a H(+)/glycerol symport, derepressed by growth on non-fermentable carbon sources, later associated with GUP1 and GUP2 genes. It was also demonstrated that only the combined deletion of GUP1, GUP2 together with GUT1 (glycerol kinase) abolished active transport in ethanol-induced cells. In… CONTINUE READING
