High impact information on MEP3

  • In contrast, MEP1 and MEP3, which are lower affinity ammonium permeases, are not required for filamentous growth [1].
  • When electrophoresed on SDS-polyacrylamide gel, the Mep1 and Mep3 proteins migrate as expected from their predicted size, whereas the Mep2 protein migrates as a high-molecular-weight smear [2].
  • We also show that GmSAT1 restores NH4+ uptake in the yeast mutant by interfering with the inhibition of Mep3 [3].
  • We show here that, in the 26972c mutant defective in NH4+ transport, the Mep1 protein carrying an amino acid substitution in its cytoplasmic C-terminus trans-inhibits the closely related Mep3 protein [3].
