High impact information on ypt1

  • One of them, named ypt1, is highly homologous to S. cerevisiae YPT1 and mouse ypt1 and is essential for cell growth [1].
  • We have introduced a mutation into the gene corresponding to a mutation identified in ypt1, in which a conserved valine residue was altered to asparagine [2].
