Yeast Membrane Transport Book Description:

This contributed volume reviews the recent progress in our understanding of membrane transport in yeast including both Saccharomyces cerevisiae and non-conventional yeasts. The articles provide a summary of the key transport processes and put these in a systems biology context of cellular regulation, signal reception and homeostasis. After a general introduction, readers will find review articles covering the mechanisms and regulation of transport for various substrates ranging from diverse nutrients to cations, water and protons. These articles are complemented by a chapter on extremophilic yeast, a chapter on the mathematical modelling of ion transport and two chapters on the role of transport in pathogenic yeasts and antifungal drug resistance. Each article provides both a general overview of the main transport characteristics of a specific substrate or group of substrates and the unique details that only an expert working in the field is able to transmit to the reader. Researchers and students of the topic will find this book to be a useful resource for membrane transport in yeast collecting information in one complete volume, which is otherwise scattered across many papers. This might also be interesting for scientists investigating other species in order to compare transport mechanisms with known functions in yeast with the cells on which they work.

Yeast cells exposed to appropriate concentrations of iodoacetic acid, or N-ethylmaleimide, for 30 or 40 min became non-viable and inactive metabolically, but transported sugars by facilitated diffusion across a still functional external membrane. Iodoacetic acid also affected cell membranes, eliminating an intracell compartment and apparently inactivating some sugar carriers in

The European Commission funded the Yeast Transport Protein Database (YTP db) as part of the EUROFAN project. The YTP database provides access to the data of a whole genomic scale analysis of the membrane transport proteins of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The database may be searched by gene name, chromosome,
