The yeast COX5a and COX5b genes encode isoforms of subunit Va of the mitochondrial inner membrane protein complex cytochrome c oxidase. These genes have been shown to be inversely regulated at the level of transcription by oxygen, which functions through the metabolic coeffector heme. In earlier studies we identified several regulatory elements that control transcriptional activation and aerobic repression of one of these genes, COX5b. Here, we report the isolation of trans-acting mutants that are defective in the aerobic repression of COX5b transcription. The mutants fall into two complementation groups. One group specifies ROX1, which encodes a product reported to be involved in transcriptional repression. The other group identified the gene we have designated ORD1. Mutations in ORD1 cause overexpression of COX5b aerobically but do not affect the expression of the hypoxic genes CYC7, HEM13, and ANB1. ORD1 mutations also do not affect the expression of the aerobic genes COX5a, CYC1, ROX1, ROX3, and TIF51A. The yeast genome contains a single ORD1 gene that resides on chromosome XI. Strains carrying chromosomal deletions of the ORD1 locus are viable and exhibit phenotypes similar to, but less severe than, that of the original mu...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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.
