Disease relevance of GDA1


High impact information on GDA1


Biological context of GDA1


Anatomical context of GDA1

  • During the course of these studies we have found that two activities associated with the yeast Golgi apparatus, Kex2 endopeptidase and GDPase, are in separable subcompartments [9].
  • Replacement of the lumenal domain resulted in mislocalization of the chimeric protein from the Golgi to the vacuole, but a similar substitution leaving 34 amino acids of the GDPase lumenal domain intact was properly localized [10].
  • In Saccharomyces cerevisiae a Golgi lumenal GDPase (ScGda1p) generates GMP, the antiporter required for entry of GDP-mannose, from the cytosol, into the Golgi lumen [11].
  • The Golgi GDPase of the fungal pathogen Candida albicans affects morphogenesis, glycosylation, and cell wall properties [12].

Associations of GDA1 with chemical compounds

  • We show that deletion of YND1, like deletion of GDA1, alters the sphingolipid profiles, suggesting that changes in sphingolipids compensate for lethality produced by changes in sterol composition and abundance [13].
  • The overexpression of the YND1 gene in the gda1 null mutant caused a significant increase in microsomal membrane-bound nucleoside phosphatase activity with a luminal orientation [6].
  • We report detection and characterization of a GDPmannose transport activity and a GDPase by yeast vesicles [8].
  • The Golgi guanosine diphosphatase is required for transport of GDP-mannose into the lumen of Saccharomyces cerevisiae Golgi vesicles [14].
  • PMR1 is found in fractions containing the Golgi marker guanosine diphosphatase, and is associated with an ATP-dependent, protonophore-insensitive 45Ca2+ uptake activity [15].

Physical interactions of GDA1

  • Our findings indicate that DPAP A is aberrantly transported to the cell surface but GDPase is not [16].

Other interactions of GDA1

  • YND1, a homologue of GDA1, encodes membrane-bound apyrase required for Golgi N- and O-glycosylation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae [6].
  • In the pmr1 mutant we found a decrease in activity of the P-type ATPase and of ATP-dependent, protonophore-insensitive Ca2+ transport in light membranes, that comigrate with the Golgi marker GDPase [17].
  • Using radiation inactivation and target analysis, we have now determined the functional molecular mass of the GDPase within the Golgi membrane and whether or not the enzyme has functional associations with other Golgi membrane proteins, including mannosyltransferases and the GDP-mannose transporter [18].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of GDA1

  • Computer-aided sequence analysis of the EATPase superfamily indicates that the human UDPase is highly similar to two hypothetical proteins of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and to an unidentified 71.9-kDa yeast protein and is less related to the previously identified yeast Golgi GDPase [19].
