Yeast MEK-dependent signal transduction: response thresholds and parameters affecting fidelity.


Ste7p and Mkk1p are MEK (MAPK/ERK kinase) family members that function in the mating and cell integrity signal transduction pathways in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We selected STE7 and MKK1 mutations that stimulated their respective pathways in the absence of an inductive signal. Strikingly, serine-to-proline substitutions at analogous positions in Ste7p… (More)
