Cis-dominant regulatory mutations affecting the formation of glucose-repressible alcohol dehydrogenase (ADHII) in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

The formation of ADHII in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is regulated by carbon catabolite repression. There are two genes involved in the formation of ADHII: ADR2, the structural gene as identified by electrophoretic variants and ADR1, possibly a regulatory gene. A new genetic element involved in the regulation of ADHII was identified by three allelic mutants insensitive to strong glucose repression. They were called ADR3c (wild type designation ADR3) and found to be tightly linked to the structural gene, ADR2. The alcohol dehydrogenase found in ADR3c mutants could not be distinguished electrophoretically from the ADHII of the glucose-sensitive wild type, ADR3. Dominance relations between ADR3c and ADR3 were established in diploids heterozygous for ADR3 and the two alleles of ADR2 (ADR2-S: slow ADHII, ADR2-F: fast ADHII). During growth on 10% glucose, an ADR3c adr2-F/ADR3 ADR2-Sheterozygous diploid formed only the fast ADHII variant wheras an ADR3c ADR2-S/ADR3 ADR2-F heterozygote produced only the slow form. This was taken as evidence of the cis-dominance of all ADR3c alleles. The cis-effect of ADR3c was also demonstrated in glucose-derepressed diploids. The ADR3c mutations do not only cause glucose-insensitive ADHII frmation, but a...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
