Characterization of a cDNA from Beta maritima that confers nickel tolerance in yeast
Nickel is an essential micronutrient due to its involvement in many enzymatic reactions as a cofactor. However, excess of this element is toxic to biological systems. Here, we constructed a cDNA library from Beta maritima ...
Genome-wide identification of genes that play a role in boron stress response in yeast
(Elsevier BV., 2011-02)
Boron is an essential micronutrient for plants and it is either necessary or beneficial for animals. Studies identified only few genes related to boron metabolism thus far and details of how boron is imported into cells ...
Compartmentalization and regulation of mitochondrial function by methionine sulfoxide reductases in yeast
(American Chemical Society, 2010-10)
Elevated levels of reactive oxygen species can damage proteins. Sulfur-containing amino acid residues, cysteine and methionine, are particularly susceptible to such damage. Various enzymes evolved to protect proteins or ...
Identification of a novel system for boron transport: Atr1 is a main boron exporter in yeast
(American Society for Microbiology, 2009-07)
Boron is a micronutrient in plants and animals, but its specific roles in cellular processes are not known. To understand boron transport and functions, we screened a yeast genomic DNA library for genes that confer resistance ...
