    Saccharomyces cerevisiae possesses two inositol transport proteins, Itr1p and Itr2p, encoded by the ITR1 and ITR2 genes, respectively. Itr1p and Itr2p are high and low affinity transporters, respectively...

    ..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. ..
