- The ALD6 gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae encodes a cytosolic, Mg(2+)-activated acetaldehyde dehydrogenaseP G Meaden
ICBD, Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh, U K
Yeast 13:1319-27. 1997..As expected, the cytosolic, Mg(2+)-activated ACDH activity had been lost from the mutants, although the mitochondrial, K(+)-activated ACDH was readily detected...
- Endocytosis and vacuolar morphology in Saccharomyces cerevisiae are altered in response to ethanol stress or heat shockP G Meaden
ICBD, Heriot Watt University, Riccarton, Edinburgh EH14 4AS, U K
Yeast 15:1211-22. 1999..The findings of this study reinforce previous observations that ethanol stress and heat shock induce similar responses in yeast...
- The xylose isomerase-encoding gene (xylA) of Clostridium thermosaccharolyticum: cloning, sequencing and phylogeny of XylA enzymesP G Meaden
Department of Biological Sciences, Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh, UK
Gene 141:97-101. 1994..thermohydrosulfuricum (93 and 84% identity, respectively). Analysis of the aligned sequences indicated two signatures (VXW[GP]GREG[YSTA]E and [LIVM]EPKPX]EQ]P) which may be useful in isolation of novel XylA...
- The STL1 gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is predicted to encode a sugar transporter-like proteinS Zhao
International Centre for Brewing and Distilling, Heriot Watt University, Riccarton, Edinburgh, UK
Gene 146:215-9. 1994..Disruption of STL1 had no detectable effect on yeast growth on glucose, galactose, mannose, maltose or glycerol as sole carbon source. The transport function of the gene product remains unknown at present...
- Identification and disruption of the gene encoding the K(+)-activated acetaldehyde dehydrogenase of Saccharomyces cerevisiaeW D Tessier
Department of Biological Sciences, University of Hull, UK
FEMS Microbiol Lett 164:29-34. 1998..This observation, together with previous work by our group, shows that both the Mg(2+)- and K(+)-ACDHs are required for growth on ethanol, whilst only the former plays a role during growth on glucose...
