FUI1 and function unknown now 26 (FUN26) are proteins of uncertain function with sequence similarities to members of the uracil/allantoin permease and equilibrative nucleoside transporter families of transporter proteins, respectively. [(3)H]Uridine influx was eliminated by disruption of the gene encoding FUI1 (fui1) and restored by expression of FUI1 cDNA, whereas influx in transport-competent and fui1-negative yeast were unaffected, respectively, by disruption of the FUN26 gene or… CONTINUE READING
