Synthesis of mannosylinositol phosphorylceramides is involved in maintenance of cell integrity of yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
We screened yeast mutant strains showing a synthetic lethal interaction with loss of mannosylinositol phosphorylceramide (MIPC) synthesis and found that a specific group of glycosyltransferases involved in the synthesis of mannan-type N-glycans is essential for the growth of cells lacking MIPC synth...

Vancomycin tolerance in clinical and laboratory Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates depends on reduced enzyme activity of the major LytA autol...
We examined two vancomycin-tolerant clinical isolates, i.e., a purported autolysin negative (LytA(-)), serotype 23F isolate (strain S3), and the serotype 14 strain "Tupelo" which is considered a paradigm of vancomycin tolerance. S3 was characterized here as carrying a frameshift mutation in the lytA...
The SciZ protein anchors the enteroaggregative
Type VI secretion sys...
We recently launched a study on the Sci-1 T6SS of enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC). The Sci-1 T6SS is composed of all or a subset of the 21 gene products encoded within the cluster, 13 of which are shared by all T6SS identified so far. In the present work, we focussed our attention on the S...
The molecular mechanism of mitochondria autophagy in yeast
We review the current knowledge on mitophagy, in particular on the molecular mechanism and regulation of mitophagy in yeast. We also discuss some of the differences between yeast and mammalian mitophagy....
Nuclear-encoded DnaJ homologue of
interacts with replication
We analyzed DNA-protein interactions at a plDNA replication ori region and report the identification of a nuclear-encoded DnaJ homolog that binds directly to ori elements of the plDNA molecule. PfDnaJ(A) interacted with the minor groove of the DNA double-helix and recognized a 13 bp sequence within...
