Phosphorylation of the GTS1 gene product of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and its effect on heat tolerance and flocculation.

The GTS1 gene from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae showed pleiotropic effects on yeast phenotypes, including an increase of heat tolerance in stationary-phase cells and an induction of flocculation. Here, we found that the GTS1 product, Gts1p, was partially phosphorylated at some serine residue(s) in cells grown on glucose. Studies using mutants of protein kinase A (PKA) and CDC25, the Ras-GTP exchange activator, showed that PKA positively regulated the phosphorylation level of Gts1p. Overexpression of Gts1p in a mutant with attenuated PKA activity did not show any increase of heat tolerance and partially decreased flocculation inducibility, suggesting that phosphorylation of Gts1p is required for induction of these phenomena.[1]
