- Filament formation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae--a reviewJ R Dickinson
Cardiff School of Bioscences, Cardiff University, Cardiff, CF10 3TL, UK
Folia Microbiol (Praha) 53:3-14. 2008..It also leads to the conclusion that 3Me-BuOH-induced filament formation is not a foraging response but a response to reduced growth rate...
- Yeasts: providing questions and answers for modern biologyJ R Dickinson
Cardiff School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, UK
Sci Prog 83:173-92. 2000....
- The catabolism of amino acids to long chain and complex alcohols in Saccharomyces cerevisiaeJ Richard Dickinson
Cardiff School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, United Kingdom
J Biol Chem 278:8028-34. 2003....
- Are yeasts free-living unicellular eukaryotes?J R Dickinson
Cardiff School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, UK
Lett Appl Microbiol 41:445-7. 2005..Yeasts are defined as unicellular fungi, yet many recent observations suggest their whole lifestyle is anything but unicellular. This review surveys the evidence that yeasts are really social organisms with cell-to-cell communication...
- A transcriptome analysis of isoamyl alcohol-induced filamentation in yeast reveals a novel role for Gre2p as isovaleraldehyde reductaseMichael Hauser
Cardiff School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK
FEMS Yeast Res 7:84-92. 2007..These results indicate a previously unsuspected and novel role for the GRE2 gene product as a suppressor of filamentation by virtue of encoding isovaleraldehyde reductase activity...
- The Ehrlich pathway for fusel alcohol production: a century of research on Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolismLucie A Hazelwood
Cardiff School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, P O Box 915, Cardiff CF10 3TL, United Kingdom
Appl Environ Microbiol 74:2259-66. 2008
- The retroviral proteinase active site and the N-terminus of Ddi1 are required for repression of protein secretionRhian E White
Cardiff School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, Park Place, Cardiff, UK
FEBS Lett 585:139-42. 2011..Here we demonstrate an additional role for this domain, along with the N-terminal region, in protein secretion. These results further substantiate the hypothesis that Ddi1 functions in vivo as a catalytically-active aspartic proteinase...
- Biotransformation of hop aroma terpenoids by ale and lager yeastsAndrew J King
Cardiff School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, PO Box 915, CF10 3TL, Cardiff, UK
FEMS Yeast Res 3:53-62. 2003..The lager yeast also produced acetate esters of geraniol and citronellol. The major terpenoids of hop oil, however, were not biotransformed. Oxygenated terpenoids persisted much longer than the alkenes...
- Isoamyl alcohol-induced morphological change in Saccharomyces cerevisiae involves increases in mitochondria and cell wall chitin contentKerstin Kern
Cardiff School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, P O Box 915, Cardiff CF10 3TL, UK
FEMS Yeast Res 5:43-9. 2004..Filaments have an increased chitin content which is distributed over the majority of their surface, and is not confined to bud scars and the chitin ring between mother and daughter cells as in yeast-form cells...
- Physiological characterization of the ARO10-dependent, broad-substrate-specificity 2-oxo acid decarboxylase activity of Saccharomyces cerevisiaeZeynep Vuralhan
Department of Biotechnology, Delft University of Technology, Julianalaan 67, 2628 BC Delft, The Netherlands
Appl Environ Microbiol 71:3276-84. 2005..The results reported here indicate the involvement of posttranscriptional regulation and/or a second protein in the ARO10-dependent, broad-substrate-specificity decarboxylase activity...
- Methionine catabolism in Saccharomyces cerevisiaePhilippe Perpète
Unite de Brasserie et des Industries Alimentaires, Universite Catholique de Louvain, Louvain la Neuve, Belgium
FEMS Yeast Res 6:48-56. 2006..Hence, methionine catabolism is more complex and economical than the other amino acid catabolic pathways in yeast, which use the Ehrlich pathway and result solely in the formation of a fusel alcohol...
- Molecular cloning of an arabidopsis homologue of GCN2, a protein kinase involved in co-ordinated response to amino acid starvationYuhua Zhang
Department of Crop Performance and Improvement, Rothamsted Research, Harpenden, Hertfordshire, AL5 2JQ, UK
Planta 217:668-75. 2003....
- In yeast, the pseudohyphal phenotype induced by isoamyl alcohol results from the operation of the morphogenesis checkpointClaudia Martinez-Anaya
Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, University of Sheffield, Sheffield S10 2TN, UK
J Cell Sci 116:3423-31. 2003..These observations show that IAA induces the Swe1-dependent morphogenesis checkpoint and so the resulting pseudohyphal phenotype arises in an entirely different way from the formation of pseudohyphae induced by nitrogen-limited growth...
- DNA sequences from Arabidopsis, which encode protein kinases and function as upstream regulators of Snf1 in yeastSandra Hey
Department of Crop Performance and Improvement, Rothamsted Research, Harpenden AL5 2JQ, United Kingdom
J Biol Chem 282:10472-9. 2007..3 and NM_114393.3 have been named AtSnAK1 and AtSnAK2 (Arabidopsis thaliana SnRK1-activating kinase), respectively. We believe this is the first time that upstream activators of SnRK1 have been described in any plant species...
- Yeast mother cell-specific ageing, genetic (in)stability, and the somatic mutation theory of ageingPeter Laun
Department of Cell Biology, Division of Genetics, University of Salzburg, Austria
Nucleic Acids Res 35:7514-26. 2007..We are reviewing here the evidence for genetic change and its causality in the mother cell-specific ageing process of yeast...
- Translational regulator RpL10p/Grc5p interacts physically and functionally with Sed1p, a dynamic component of the yeast cell surfaceKamil Oender
Department of Genetics and General Biology, Paris Lodron University Salzburg, Hellbrunnerstrasse 34, A 5020 Salzburg
Yeast 20:281-94. 2003..PLB3 encodes a phospholipase, which is active in the breakdown of membrane lipids. Our results support the view that Grc5p/RpL10p links ribosome function to membrane turnover and cell surface biogenesis...
- Identification of SnIP1, a novel protein that interacts with SNF1-related protein kinase (SnRK1)Stephen P Slocombe
IACR Long Ashton Research Station, Department of Agricultural Sciences, University of Bristol, Long Ashton, UK
Plant Mol Biol 49:31-44. 2002..SnIP1 was found to have little overall sequence similarity with the PV42 family of SNF4-like plant proteins, but proteins of both the SnIP1 and PV42 families contain a conserved hydrophobic sequence we named the SnIP motif...
- SNF1-related protein kinase (snRK1) phosphorylates class I heat shock proteinStephen P Slocombe
Long Ashton Research Station, Long Ashton, Bristol, BS41 9AE United Kingdom
Plant Physiol Biochem 42:111-6. 2004..However, a specific phosphorylation site at serine-35 was identified by solid phase sequencing of RP-HPLC-purified peptides after phosphorylation by spinach SnRK1...
