High impact information on PHO88

  • Both disruption and high dosage of PHO88 or PHO86 resulted in reduced Pi uptake [1].
  • A new gene, PHO88/ YBR106w, has now been identified as a multicopy suppressor of the rAPase- phenotype of the cells caused by the Pi inhibition of Pho81p [1].
  • The delta pho86 delta pho88 double disruption resulted in enhanced synthesis of rAPase under the high-Pi condition and conferred arsenate resistance on the cells than those in single disruptants of these genes [1].

Physical interactions of PHO88

  • These findings suggest that Pho88p is also involved in Pi transport and modulates Pho81p function together with Pho86p [1].
