J Biol Chem. 2001;276:26472-8 pubmed..These results reveal two new components of the pheromone-signaling cascade in yeast, each acting at a point downstream of the MAPK. ..

By monitoring Fpk1 activity in vivo, we found that Fpk1 was hyperactive in cells lacking Gin4, a protein kinase ..

PLoS ONE. 2015;10:e0120108 pubmed publisher..These results suggest that inositol depletion changes the lipid composition of the endosomal/TGN membranes, which results in vesicle formation from these membranes in the absence of flippases. ..
