High impact information on PIG1

  • Two of them, PIG1 (= THI1) and PIG4 (= THI2), were found to be highly transcribed in haustoria, and are homologous to genes involved in thiamine (vitamin B1) biosynthesis in yeast [1].
  • Two positives expressed proteins derived from genes designated PIG1 and PIG2, on chromosomes XIIR and IXL respectively [2].
  • Yeast PIG genes: PIG1 encodes a putative type 1 phosphatase subunit that interacts with the yeast glycogen synthase Gsy2p [2].
