High impact information on PDC6

  • This decarboxylation can be effected by any of Pdc1p, Pdc5p, Pdc6p, or Ydr380wp; Ydl080cp has no role in the catabolism of either amino acid [1].
  • Characterization of PDC6, a third structural gene for pyruvate decarboxylase in Saccharomyces cerevisiae [2].
  • Northern (RNA) blot analysis showed that PDC6 is weakly expressed, and expression seemed to be higher during growth in ethanol medium [2].
  • The product of PDC6 does not seem to be required for wild-type pyruvate decarboxylase activity in glucose medium; delta pdc6 mutants have no reduced specific enzyme activity, and the PDC6 deletion did not change the phenotype or the specific enzyme activity of mutants lacking either or both of the other two structural genes [2].
  • For transcription factor cloning we have designed an integration vector with two HIS3 reporter gene cassettes to stably integrate reporter gene constructs at the non-essential yeast PDC6 locus [3].

Associations of PDC6 with chemical compounds

  • Role of cysteines in the activation and inactivation of brewers' yeast pyruvate decarboxylase investigated with a PDC1-PDC6 fusion protein [4].
  • The second route, via pyruvate decarboxylase, is the one that is used because elimination of pyruvate decarboxylase activity in a pdc1 pdc5 pdc6 triple mutant virtually abolished isobutyl alcohol production [5].

Regulatory relationships of PDC6

  • The second copy of PDC6 was expressed under the control of the PDC1 promoter, which was still present in the pdc1 strain [6].
