The importance of boron in biological systems
Boron is an essential element for plants and probably essential for human and animal health. Boron has a broad range of physiological effects on biological systems at low concentrations, whereas it is toxic to at high ...
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 ...
Boron stress activates the general amino acid control mechanism and inhibits protein synthesis
(Public Library of Science, 2011-11)
Boron is an essential micronutrient for plants, and it is beneficial for animals. However, at high concentrations boron is toxic to cells although the mechanism of this toxicity is not known. Atr1 has recently been identified ...
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 ...
Roles of ATR1 paralogs YMR279c and YOR378w in boron stress tolerance
Boron is a necessary nutrient for plants and animals, however excess of it causes toxicity. Previously, Atr1 and Arabidopsis Bor1 homolog were identified as the boron efflux pump in yeast, which lower the cytosolic boron ...
