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 ...
Assessment of chronological lifespan dependent molecular damages in yeast lacking mitochondrial antioxidant genes
The free radical theory of aging states that oxidative damage to biomolecules causes aging and that antioxidants neutralize free radicals and thus decelerate aging. Mitochondria produce most of the reactive oxygen species, ...
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 ...
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 ...
