Site-directed mutagenesis of Saccharomyces cerevisiae beta-tubulin: interaction between residue 167 and benzimidazole compounds.

Abstract

Benzimidazoles are widely used as anthelmintic agents and systemic fungicides. In susceptible organisms, benzimidazoles bind to beta-tubulin and block microtubule polymerization. To further characterize this interaction, site-directed mutagenesis followed by gene replacement was used to change Saccharomyces cerevisiae beta-tubulin residue Phe-167 to Tyr… (More)
