  1. Folch Mallol J, Martínez L, Casas S, Yang R, Martinez Anaya C, Lopez L, et al. New roles for CDC25 in growth control, galactose regulation and cellular differentiation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Microbiology. 2004;150:2865-79 pubmed
    ..In conclusion, the function of the catalytic, C-terminal domain of Cdc25p is not only important for fermentative growth, but also for growth in non-fermentable carbon sources and to trigger galactose derepression. ..
  2. Valenzuela L, Aranda C, Gonzalez A. TOR modulates GCN4-dependent expression of genes turned on by nitrogen limitation. J Bacteriol. 2001;183:2331-4 pubmed
    ..This constitutes an additional TOR-dependent mechanism which modulates the action of transcriptional activators. ..
  3. Sosa E, Aranda C, Riego L, Valenzuela L, DeLuna A, Cantu J, et al. Gcn4 negatively regulates expression of genes subjected to nitrogen catabolite repression. Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2003;310:1175-80 pubmed
    ..Since Gcn4 regulates the expression of a broad spectrum of genes, the lack of this transcriptional activator could prevent the expression of a potential Gln3 antagonist. Alternatively, Gcn4 could directly hinder Gln3 functioning. ..
  4. Huanca Mamani W, Garcia Aguilar M, León Martínez G, Grossniklaus U, Vielle Calzada J. CHR11, a chromatin-remodeling factor essential for nuclear proliferation during female gametogenesis in Arabidopsis thaliana. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2005;102:17231-6 pubmed
  5. López Rodríguez A, Trejo A, Coyne L, Halliwell R, Miledi R, Martinez Torres A. The product of the gene GEF1 of Saccharomyces cerevisiae transports Cl- across the plasma membrane. FEMS Yeast Res. 2007;7:1218-29 pubmed
    ..However, the mechanism of activation of the channel has yet to be defined. ..
  6. Tavares Carreón F, Camacho Villasana Y, Zamudio Ochoa A, Shingu Vazquez M, Torres Larios A, Perez Martinez X. The pentatricopeptide repeats present in Pet309 are necessary for translation but not for stability of the mitochondrial COX1 mRNA in yeast. J Biol Chem. 2008;283:1472-9 pubmed
    ..Our results show that the RNA metabolism function of Pet309 is found in at least two separate domains of the protein. ..
  7. Gutiérrez Lomelí M, Torres Guzman J, Gonzalez Hernandez G, Cira Chávez L, Pelayo Ortiz C, Ramírez Córdova J. Overexpression of ADH1 and HXT1 genes in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae improves the fermentative efficiency during tequila elaboration. Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek. 2008;93:363-71 pubmed publisher
    ..33% to 84.57% and 89.40% to 94.29% in YPD and Agave medium respectively. ..
  8. García Campusano F, Anaya V, Robledo Arratia L, Quezada H, Hernández H, Riego L, et al. ALT1-encoded alanine aminotransferase plays a central role in the metabolism of alanine in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Can J Microbiol. 2009;55:368-74 pubmed publisher
    ..ALT2 expression was repressed under all tested conditions, suggesting that Alt2p biosynthesis is strictly controlled and only allowed to express under peculiar physiological conditions. ..
  9. Araiza Olivera D, Chiquete Felix N, Rosas Lemus M, Sampedro J, Pena A, Mújica A, et al. A glycolytic metabolon in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is stabilized by F-actin. FEBS J. 2013;280:3887-905 pubmed publisher
    ..In S. cerevisiae, a glycolytic metabolon appear to assemble in association with F-actin. In this complex, fermentation activity is enhanced and enzymes are partially protected against inhibition by trehalose or by antibodies. ..

Reactive oxygen species production induced by ethanol in Saccharomyces cerevisiae increases because of a dysfunctional mitochondrial iron-sulfur cluster assembly system. FEMS Yeast Res. 2013;13:804-19 pubmed publisher
    ..In addition, mutations in the ISC genes in S. cerevisiae contribute to the increase in ROS concentration at the mitochondrial and cellular level, leading to depletion of the antioxidant responses and finally to mitochondrial apoptosis...

    ..Pet54 may play a role in Mss51 hemylation/conformational change necessary for translational activity. Moreover, Pet54 physically interacts with the COX1 mRNA, and this binding was independent of the presence of Mss51. ..

    ..Overall, we conclude that the different functions of Mss116 in the biogenesis and functioning of the mitochondrial translation machinery depend on Mss116 interplay with its protein cofactors. ..

    ..We propose that the combination of Gln3 and Gcn4 results in the constitution of a hybrid modulator which elicits a novel transcriptional response, not evoked when these modulators act in a non-combinatorial fashion. ..
